About Me

Hi, My name is Irene Owens. My greatest passion in life is Art. I love drawing portraits, painting whimsical pictures and illustrating for children. I also collect children's books and hope to one day get one of my own picture books published. I have a shop on Etsy where I sell my prints, hand painted pendants and mirrors. In this blog you will find artists that inspire me, brilliant handmade creations and my own art. I hope you enjoy my posts.

From Dreams

In my dream I had a tiny frog and he died suddenly. I was looking at him lying at the bottom of the tank and then I saw a fish quickly pick the frog up, hold it gently by the throat. She was pushing the frog upwards, I could feel her panic, as if I was that fish. She thought that the frog was sick and needed air, she didn't know that he was dead, but I did.
I don't remember what happened later, maybe she did manage to save him. I'd like to think so.

Acrylics on watercolor paper. A print is available in my Etsy shop TinyRed


  1. @Milly, wow that sounds like an exciting dream. Do you ever illustrate based on your dreams?
