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.

This is a commission illustration for a little girl's nursery. Once again, a dream commission! I was only asked to do a picture of an elephant in the same style as my other elephant illustrations, the rest was up to me :)
