About Me

My photo
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.

Emily Winfield Martin

I came across Emily Winfield Martin's art when I opened my shop on Etsy. It was very difficult to avoid it as Emily is a legend on Etsy, I believe hers is the most successful shop there. It's easy to see why. Her art is so unique, so inspiring. I love her whimsical images, her bold colors, the charm and mystery of her characters. But the thing I admire the most is that Emily's style is so recognizable. I'm still struggling to settle down with one particular style, I'm still a bit all over the place, searching for my niche. I hope to find it one day.

Meanwhile, here's a selection of my favorite paintings by Emily.

  1. I came across her around the time I joined Etsy too, but funnily enough I haven't seen most of the bits you put in your post, but love them!
