Irene believes that the spaces we inhabit, where we live, work, play, eat and dream everyday not only shape the way we feel but also our health, happiness, passion and zest for life. They affect fundamental things such as our sleep, creativity, love, and our overall sense of self. It is with this in mind that Irene creates each and every commissioned painting. The process is done with profound passion and care as if she was a therapist, doctor or shaman. She firmly believes that art can positively influence our state of mind.
The creation process begins with an in-depth debriefing with the client. Based on the input she creates an initial (digital) sketch of the painting. Through guidance and dialogue, Irene ensures the client becomes an active part of the creative process. The client is encouraged to give feedback on composition, colors and feel, to blend their inspiration with that of Irene. It is this strong collaboration that makes each commissioned piece a unique and personal painting – a true piece of their soul.
