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.

Chiho Makino

Trying to fight jet lag by staying up till at least 9 o'clock. My husband and son have failed miserably and are now snoozing together.
Everything is starting to look a bit fuzzy around the edges and I think I'm starting to dream... I have this same feeling when I look at paintings by Chiho Makino. Aren't they lovely?


  1. Absolutely! Fuzzy is GOOD! Hope you get over your jet lag :)

  2. Oh my, some of these might be just a TAD too fuzzy. But that teeny tapir(I think) standing on the chair in the hall, and that last one standing on the bed, just slay me. The bear sitting in the red waiting room chairs is pretty awesome too.
