Illustrating for Brands Masterclass with Livia Falcaru

Livia’s work is above all influenced by her personal experiences as a woman living in these times.

Livia describes her work as constantly adapting to her growth process as an artist and human being. Her body of work merges both traditional and digital techniques.
