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.

Little Snow Girl

"The girls set off holding Little Snow Girl's hand, but as soon as they got to the forest and saw all the berries, they forgot about everything else and ran off in all directions, picking berries and hallooing to one another. They filled their baskets with berries, but lost Little Snow Girl in the forest."
I've joined a children's illustrators club on DeviantArt and was very excited about my first assignment. We had to illustrate a small paragraph from a story and they don't mention whih story it is so that you can use your imagination without any bias. When I read the paragraph, this is the image that popped into my head and I've tried to paint it as best I could.

Acrylics, watercolor and color pencils on paper.
