SERENA FORTIN was born in the north east of Italy, but her artistic training began in Tuscany where she stayed for 6 years, obtaining the Bachelor of Art Master in the "Art Institute of Wood and the Restoration of Antique Furniture" in Anghiari ( AREZZO), in addition to the professional qualification in "Operator of Restoration of Furniture and Decoration in wood". This is where his passion for wood carving begins, although he combines it with the restoration of ancient canvases and frescoes and works as apprentice in several workshops of artisan restorers followed and guided by true experts of the sector. With this background of experiences, he returns to his homeland and set up his own workshop, where he develops his professional career performing restoration work for both private clients and public entities and museums, in furniture, doors and frames of various types, epochs, styles and proveniences. She also obtains the training title in "Decoradora de Interiores Habitables" that provides new opportunities and experiences: interior decoration and realization of furniture and accessories. Her concern for creation and contemporary design also leads her to a new project: the design and realization of wood sculpture-jewels, also exhibiting her works in the most important Italian exhibitions in the sector (International Goldsmith Exhibition, silver jewelery and jewelry "ORO AREZZO" and the International Fair "VICENZA ORO"). Since 2006 he lives in Jerez de la Frontera where he worked in his own workshop as an antique restorer both for individuals and public entities such as the "Juan Sebastián de Elcano" School Ship and the Diputación de Cádiz. www.sfrestauraciones.es
She is currently working on the design and construction of sculptural lamps that mainly use wood for the structure, and system with LED technology for lighting, creating those that can be proposed and considered as prototypes to reproduce even on a large scale. She also sculpts sculptures with abstract figures in different sizes, participating in collective and individual exhibitions in Jerez de la Frontera and in the area of the province of Càdiz. In addition, she is dedicated to the design and creation of contemporary wooden jewelry also with other new materials.
Serena Fortin is open to collaborations with architects and interior designer.
