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.

Didi Wang

This illustrator is my newest discovery. I'm in love :) Aren't they adorable? I especially like illustrations from her Perception series - taste, touch, smell, etc. So clever!

Sonnet and Hoggy

This is a commission painting - a dream commission, I must say. My customer loves Hoggy and so she wanted to have an original painting of him, but she also loves albino hedgehogs and asked me if I could paint one for her. I enjoyed working on this picture very much, I wish I had more commissions like this :)

A Nurturing Hand

My very talented husband has just finished this drawing of me. The picture was taken when I was three months pregnant and our little boy is almost forteen months old now! Yes, it did take him a long time but I think it was worth the wait, the patience and the hard work he's put into it. I absolutely adore it.
