"I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead;
I lift my eyes and all is born again."
Hello, I am Francesca Politi and currently live in Italy.
I draw and paint since I remember, together with playing piano, but I "quit" piano when I was 16teen for health problems so even if that's a big part of my heart and kept playing a bit, since then I got more involved in visual Art.
Beside and in spite of health issues I achieved my Academic University degree in History of Art, Iconography and Iconology long ago, co. "La Sapienza" University, in Rome... which in short means no job here where I live (lol), but I went ahead also drawing and painting and planning stories.
I won the 1st national prize for comic contest held by the International School of Comics in Rome, in 2004, and the prize was a free whole year into the Academy itself.
I started photomanipulations and digital painting with my old account here on dArt in 2009, but my pc was too low quality to really enjoy it, so I just continued with traditional media.
Diseases got worse at a point that I was forced to focus on healing and on my family. In the meantime I saved money and also sold my vertical piano to be able to have a good pc, a wacom tablet and my beloved Canon Eos.
(At least I can bring the camera with me, something impossible with a vertical piano ^^)
I recovered gradually, thanks to Lord, in the last 3 years and started again with Art, especially enjoying photography and photomanipulations - and some digital painting - so I also started a new account here.
I personally think Art is a neverending path, or better... it ends just with death, so I am still and will be always into the process of learning, by trials and errors, by hard study, by inspiration, by dreams, by life...
And here we are. I hope You like my gallery, enjoy the journey.
Any comment, any fav, any watch, any look is much appreciated and I am really grateful for it, for all I learnt, for all I am still discovering, for all the wonderful people and artists I am finding here.
