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.

Birds of Paradise

Came across this painting today and was pleasantly surprised. I've painted it a couple of years ago but was not satisfied with it for some reason. Looking at it now, I can't remember what it was that I didn't like. It's quite pretty, isn't it? :-)

Do you ever fall in or out of love with your own work?


  1. It's fab! Can't find anything about it that I don't like.
