Irene was born and educated in Winnipeg Manitoba. Her journey of discovery as an artist began with a course in watercolor with John Gaudes and she enjoyed it so much she joined
the Forum Art studio to learn acrylic painting, with further studies at the Winnipeg Art Gallery.
She was a member of the St. James Fine Arts group for several years and has been an active member of the Charleswood Art Group for the past 7 years.
Irene's love for the beauty of nature is depicted in her artwork, and her love of the outdoors can be seen in much of her art. She also enjoys painting a great variety of subjects in styles from abstract to realism .
Her artwork has been displayed at City Hall, Forum Art, Assiniboine Park Conservatory, Great West Life, Charleswood Library and the Millennium Library, as well as various other venues including the Punch Gallery at the Forks and Frame of Mind Gallery. Irene has actively participated in Artarama, the Manitoba Society of Artist's show, and of course, the Charleswood Art Group's Annual Art Show and Sale.
