IRENE SERVILLO | SPOTLIGHTING OUR FEMALE ARTISTS IN MARCH CELEBRATING WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH!
March 10, 2021 Irene Servillo
Celebrating Women’s History Month! Please meet our next fearless female #lcmartist IRENE SERVILLO! Irene is from Naples, Italy and currently living in France. She creates amazing whimsical images using cut paper, paint and pencils — all inspired by the people and culture surrounding her. In one of her previous interviews Irene explained that the reason she loves creating stories with paper is because the process makes her feel free from fear. It allows her to try out many different compositions before actually sticking everything down, which inevitably takes the anxiety away and makes the process very playful and enjoyable. Her intricate work is so subtle yet so powerful so lets move on and get to know this Meditteranean beauty!
