Aurora now lives in the United States, but she was born in Sicily and is located in Italy, where her deep love for the art world comes from. She studied and graduated in art at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Catania, which gave her a solid foundation for her vibrant career.
A turning point in her life was her move to the United States of America, where her work ceased.
