Irene is an artist, illustrator and mindful art teacher. Working both traditional and digital (and often a combination of the two) Irene tries to capture something magical in everything she makes. Her illustrations are inspired by nature, mindfulness, feminism and by the stories and fairy tales of her childhood. You can find Irene’s illustrations in children’s books, magazines and on product packaging. After completing her studies in the Netherlands, Irene moved to London and more recently to St Neots.
In 2019 Irene started her business Makings and Musings with which she offers mindful creativity workshops, including painting, drawing, macramé, needlework and drawing with minimal materials. At the beginning of lockdown, all workshops moved from in-person to online and as a result, Irene created a community of creatives and teaches people all over the world.
