Trained at The Wimbledon School of Art and The Royal College of Art, Mazzotta paints and draws works primarily from her imagination — a technique that allows her to focus on the energy and personal feeling of a piece. Her influences include Art Deco, the golden age of cinema, and, of course, her Italian heritage, which — in her own words — has given her ‘a passion for colour, broad fast brushstrokes, movement, energy… and humour’.
