Stefano d'Andrea was born in Sanremo in 1955 and trained at the Liceo Artistico (art school) of Brera (Milan). His professional activity crosses the design and the graphics until the restoration of ancient and modern works of art. Along this path he has carried a constant pictorial activity, exposing his paintings in many personal and collective exhibitions. The great passion for haiku dates back to the 1970s, creating in 1999 the haiku poetry journal Le Lumachine, which arrived today in the 41st issue. He published his haiku, senryū, and haibun online and in print journals: American Haijin, The Asahi Shimbun (Asahi Haikuist Network), Blōō Outlier Journal, Bones, cattails, Charlotte Digregorio's Writer's Blog, Cold Moon Journal, Chrysanthemum, ephemerae, Ershik, Euterpe, Failed Haiku, Haiku Commentary, Harusame, Incense Dreams, Kontinuum, Le Lumachine, L'Ours dansant, The Mamba, Memorie di una geisha, Otata, Password, Scarlet Dragonfly Journal, Troutswirl – THF’s blog: Per Diem (Daily Haiku), Under the Bashō, Whiptail, and World Haiku Review.

Selected Work
in the clearing
the sweet thuds of chestnuts
―childhood echoes
reading Lorca
―a tangerine's droplet
on the page
plowed field
the mind reseeds
―again and again
in the crackling blaze the bramble proffers a blackberry
after the tourist's smile the potter stretches the vase
autumn baby wears the mask of a demon
