A painter, draughtsman and textile designer, Arianna Fioratti Loreto was born in New York and studied at Harvard University (where she served as president of the two-century old social club known as the Hasty Pudding Club) and Princeton University, where she completed a thesis on Romanesque sculpture and gained a doctorate in art history in 1992. She began her career as a textile and fabric designer, between 1993 and 1997, and has also illustrated children’s books and designed furniture. Her first solo exhibition of drawings was held at the Ursus gallery and bookstore in New York in 1999, and was followed by further exhibitions at commercial galleries in both New York and Atlanta between 2011 and 2016. Today she lives and works near Florence in Tuscany.
