A BRIKA maker story

An award-winning children’s book author and illustrator, Irene (or Mama Bear as she’s called by her son, Luca) has been making artful objects and images since she was very little. Irene believes that every child needs a space to grow, explore and play, whether it’s a tiny tucked away corner or grand suite. Her artful images engage the imagination, stimulate early development and encourage observation of the world, creating an environment that nurtures and supports the healthy development of little ones.

Her vivid imagery has been enriching picture books for many years and she’s now curated a special collection of carefully hand-drawn and painted prints to adorn the walls of children’s rooms. They are all hand-signed on the front and may include a special dedication on the back, at your request.
