“Nothing makes me so happy as to observe nature and paint what I see. Just imagine when I go out into the countryside and see the sun and the green and everything flowering, I say to myself: “Yes, indeed, all that belongs to me!”
– Henri Rousseau
Irene Pieri was born in Kent on the south east coast of England and later moved to Scotland where she lived until she came to Switzerland.
Growing up by the sea has influenced her artwork and has become her inspiration for most of her paintings. Art has become a way of life for her and unimaginable without it.
Irene has participated in various art courses in the UK and at the academia del giglio in Florence
