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.

Everything and Nothing

I am a universe - complex, mysterious, full of life. I'm also just a grain of sand - soon to be lost forever, forgotten. How can I be everything and nothing at the same time?

Sea always makes me feel tiny and insignificant, in awe of its beauty and power. It makes me ask myself questions I know I can't answer.

Painting time!

Here's a sneaky peek at my new painting. I've tidied up my desk a bit before the picture was taken, usually it's a LOT messier, no matter how hard I try to keep it neat. Tell me about your working spaces - neat or chaos?
