My name is Adele Marano, I live in Calabria, a beautiful land, surrounded by the sea and magnificant mountains. Découpage is for me a passion, rewarding, exciting and relaxing. I particularly love decoupage under glass. One of my other passions is computer graphics; I love Photoshop, magical and surprising with infinite possibilities. A few years ago I took the ECDL certificate (European Computer Driving License). The techniques that I applied to my work are the result of research, study and practice, lots of practice. I started this path a year ago, I learned everything by myself, I’ve never taken courses. I am certainly a beginner with a long way to go. I am fascinated by “traditional découpage” with its wonderful marble effects and the famous “ gloss polishing”.
