About Me

Constanza Villarreal was born in Santa Fe, Argentina on 1978.

After studying architecture at the Universidad Nacional del Litoral, she moved to Italy where she focus on her training as a visual artist in the classical atelier system at the Canova atelier in Roma, and the Florence Academy, both in Florence and Sweden. She currently  lives in Rome Italy.

My paintings and drawings on textiles are explorations on the vast theme of home, from architectural and domestic contexts, to the immemorial house of dreams. My interest in peoples dwellings and the bond they form with the notion of home its been influenced by my own life experiences, specially that of migrating and of motherhood.
