Maicol lives and works in Florence, Italy — the epicenter of the Renaissance. He started his career at a young age, drawing out of pure instinct with only ink and paper.
That same instinct manifests itself in his work today. By starting with rough lines and minimal detail, Maicol is able to capture the ideal form of his subject early on, transforming it into a final piece crafted to perfection.
Outside of drawing, Maicol finds incredible pleasure in the art of coffee. The process, detail and result require incredible attention. He has mastered it all to create world-class coffee and cappuccinos for himself, family and friends.
