Some Examples of Irene's Work

After a career in the Womens Royal Air Force, following encouragement from friends and family, I changed careers to become a full time Artist. I have for the past few years been teaching watercolour painting to complete beginners, improvers and those just wishing to recap. It gives me great pleasure to see the beginners realise that they actually can paint and can improve week on week with a little encouragement.
I have a studio where I hold workshops in both watercolour and pastel for individuals and also travel to Art Groups and other clubs to give demonstrations and workshops in pastel and watercolour.
For the past few years, I have been delighted to have paintings accepted into The National Exhibition of Wildlife Art held on the Wirral each year.
For the past five years I have also been accepted as a demonstrator and exhibitor at The Alnmouth Arts Festival, where I demonstrate the techniques I have developed of painting animals and birds in fine detail. This takes place over the whole weekend of the Festival.
When not teaching, I work on commissions or paintings for the next exhibition.
I have also recently organised and held 2 painting holidays in Cumbria where students took great pleasure in experimenting in various mediums and completing at least 3 paintings each.
