"Like most children, my younger self experienced a phase in which everything seemed to interest me as a career. I would think of becoming an astronaut, a train operator and a doctor on the same day.  But two disciplines, despite being so polarized by the public, left a compelling mark on me.   These were careers pertaining to the visual arts and scientific research.


I commenced my art mentorship privately from the age of 7 and have undergone informal education under multiple national artists since then.  When it comes to art (and virtually any other discipline) one tutor has what the other does not, and the vast spectrum of techniques I’ve practiced endowed me with a skill set to accomplish a generous range of projects. 


I purvey my art to the public through exhibitions, private commissions and collaborations with associations and commercial companies.  All pieces in my portfolio are also available as prints.


As of 2020,  I started practicing as an independent artist.


I have also expressed my admiration towards the sciences by following advanced academic education in Biology, Chemistry and Psychology and have graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Medical Biochemistry, from the University of Malta, my motherland.  

I am currently enrolled in a PhD where I study a type of leukaemia called Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia (CML)

I‘ve been drawn towards scientific research as I am particularly fascinated by the repercussions of discovery and invention. How with the right focus, funding and cooperation, the world of research keeps pushing what we thought was achievable. 


For over a decade, it has been my pleasure and dedication to produce pieces which best describe my ideas, my research and my feelings in a medium which surpasses all language and ethnic barriers."

I had to opportunity to serve a term as the Creative director of a University organization I co-founded with a number of other enthusiastic students, called MBSA.

The association's role is to give a voice to young Biochemists on campus and beyond.
