Silvia Pelissero is an Italian painter best known as agnes-cecile. She went in an art high school in Rome, than she has continued as a self-taught. This is one of her speed paintings. She is truly inspiring. Do you recognize any of the techniques we just learned in class?
"The arts celebrate multiple perspectives. One of their large lessons is that there are many ways to see and interpret the world."
