Irina works with acrylics and oils. She is an elected member of Federation of Canadian Artists (Active Status), American Society for Art of Imagination, The National Oil & Acrylic Painters’ Society, and elected member of the Canadian Art Society. She has presented her work in shows and exhibitions in USA and Canada. Irina’s subjects are mostly nature related and how they correlate with our emotions. Flowers and landscapes for Irina are not just beautiful things to look at but spiritual essences that allow us to find symbolic representations of who we are, our minds and feelings and express them using visual images of familiar objects. As such, the focus of attention in Irina’s paintings is often on emotion rather than an object/subject.
