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.

James Franco commission portrait

This is a commission drawing I've just finished. Was a bit nervous about it as I haven't drawn with colour pencils for a long time but I like how it turned out and my customer was very happy with it  :)

Charming Opal by Holly Hobbie

This is one of the most charming books from my collection. I simply adore these watercolors! Have you ever seen more adorable piggies?

Happy Family

Here's my new watercolor illustration. A happy hedgehog family enjoying a lazy afternoon in the woods. And yes, Daddy is just "resting his eyes" :-p
