Irene’s sculpture plays a very important part in her life. She always needed to express her artistic feelings. For many years, she had searched to find the right medium for 3 dimensional work. From the very first time she placed her hands on stone to sculpt, she was captivated. The freedom that comes with creating what she feels is enlightening and a perfect outlet for her creativity. The basis for her creativity can be summarized as FEEL, FLOW & FORM. When working with stone, she is constantly feeling the curves and lines being created. The continuous flow of the work is critical. In the end, the form is pleasing to the eye and flows as a whole. Irene sculpts in soapstone and alabaster. Her style is to create sculptures that are simple, diverse and organic in nature. Overall, Irene would like others to appreciate stone as a medium, sculpture as an art form and abstract as an open-ended way of having new perspectives, whatever that may be for them. Irene has received many awards from Light, Space &Time Online Art Gallery Juried shows as well as The Distinguished Artist Awards from ArtAscent, The People’s Choice Award from Artworks Oakville, The Award of Distinction for Artistic Excellence from Artscape and Show Sculpture Award from Colour and Form Society. Irene has participated in many juried art shows and exhibitions including ones for Sculptors Society of Canada, Ontario Society of Artists, Gilda’s Club Greater Toronto, Ukrainian Association of Visual Artists of Canada and The Artist Project.
