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.

Very British Baby

I'm working on a very cool project right now - developing images for a brand of baby products called Very British Baby. I've done a bunch of drawings already and the client loved them, only these three were rejected due to nudity, they prefer the bears to be clothed. Ah well, client is always right! I still really like them though.

  1. Teddy bear..nudity? How very odd of them. These are so charming! Your work is made for childrens books!
    I've admired your work for a while on Etsy, and I have added your blog to my artist list on my blog. Hope thats ok!

  2. Thank you so much, Rosie :)
