Irene was born in Siena, Italy, on the 14th of August 1982. As a self taught artist, her research involves mainly painting, analog photography and wood sculpture. Her collectable and unique style of narrative portraiture, with rosy cheeks and big almond eyed characters surrounded by detailed…Show more patterns, floral elements and surreal scenes, have recently caught the attention of international collectors and galleries. Her favourite techniques are watercolour and acrylics, but also self produced pigments. She loves paper and she applies it everywhere, even on canvas or board, because she believes that the texture of this support is the most suitable for her style. Her works, which are represented by galleries in Italy, UK and recently in China, feature in private collection in Australia, China, Italy, United Kingdom and United States. In 2018 she will have her first solo show abroad in Mexico.Show less
"I think Irene's style and use of materials are highly original. The element of story telling that she weaves throughout each work, thoughtfully constructed with found materials that at times refer to the subject matter itself, lends the work a wonderful authenticity. I am reminded at times of Marc Chagall, whose Russian homeland he was forced to flee but whose culture and folklore featured in his work in a similar narrative manner. "
