His family left Trieste, Italy and immigrated to Boston, Massachusetts in 1956. He attended Vesper George School of Art as a Commercial art student. He began his career as Designer to Art Director to opening Deponte Design with his partner and artist Sara Deponte. Eventually his need to paint took him to illustration and finally to open White Pickets Studio. He has been making and exploring his art for the last 20 years in a variety of mediums. “As a young person with limited English language skills you tend to observe, trying to get the lay of the land. This aspect has never left me, Today I observe for humor mannerisms of people and animals as they go about their day. As an artist, I feel compelled to search, experience, explore, not just technique or subject matter but the atmosphere one creates for a viewer to be drawn in to see, rather than just look once, then come back and see again.” Fabio’s work is found in galleries as well as private collections.
