Irene has always had a passion for creating simple, elegant clothing and unique wearable art. Her love of color, design and fiber has especially developed an interest in nuno felting. She finds this felting process to be both exhilarating and relaxing while creating one-of-a-kind pieces from scarves, purses, brooches and vests to seamless jackets and dresses.
To develop her expertise, Irene has taken numerous classes since 2009 with well-known fiber artists in various U.S. locations along with attending classes offered by visiting artists from Europe. She has participated in the Annual Hartford Open Studio, Paradise City Show, Northhampton, Mass. Vt Craft Show, Chester, Vt, the Hillsted Museum May Show, Farmington, Ct, the New Britain Museum of American Art, New Britain, Ct, the Annual Art Show, Winsted, Ct.
Manchester Community College Annual Christmas Show, Manchester, Ct, Japanelia Boutique of Hartford, Ct.
Her work is presently showing at Spectrum Art Gallery, Centerbrook, CT, Sharon’s at Country Commons, Chester, VT and Venice Art.
