After successfully exhibiting at the New Gallery in Portscatho, the Italian-born Ernesto Pescini settled in Mawnan Smith in 2018, after a number of years in Wales.
Entirely self-taught, he works mainly in acrylics on marine plyboard.
His first exhibition was held in 1982 in Milan's Centro Cultura e Costume. In subsequent years his work has been shown widely throughout Europe.
