Giuliana was born in Seravezza near Pietrasanta, Tuscany. Between 1962 and 1968 she was a student at the Istituto D’Arte Stagio Stagi in Pietrasanta, gaining a Master of Arts Diploma. This was followed by a further four years studying painting at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Carrara. The Tuscan landscape and childhood memories still bear a strong influence upon the artist’s current work. In an earlier statement she describes her first encounters with Art in Italy as a child in her father’s mosaic studio. She refers to the “translucency of the mosaic fragment” and her “fascination with the vibrancy of colour” from the juxtapositioning of pieces. Her current works show an economy in terms of compositional design, with richness of surface mark and colour, reconfirming the artist’s earlier delight in light and transparency.
