Bella Rotta is Italian for "Beautifully Imperfect."

That element of imperfection in my work is intentional. I believe that imperfection is the source of all great beauty... it's why I break my paintings.

The cracks are real.  Touch and feel all the texture of my paintings.  

Touching is Loving.

I live for days on cans of tuna, juice and all. 

Tuna is my Popeye’s Spinach."
