For artist Irene Hoff, life is all about collecting stories, experiences, insights and inspiring the world to see what really matters. She does this by: taking on life adventures, small and big, doing the things she fears the most; by dreaming big and realizing her dreams such as getting Leonardo DiCaprioÕs signature on one of her animal-art which she subsequently donated to Ôrace animal extinctionÕ; and last but not least, by making beautiful and alluring art. Irene works with mixed media, using acrylic on canvass, enriched with colorful printed patterns on special coated paper. Irene believes her art holds the potential of stirring positive thoughts, stimulating our Ôenergy sourceÕ and breaking down impeding feelings and beliefs. IreneÕs art truly reflects who she is: her lightness of being, instinctive curiosity, unbounded humor, intense perceptiveness, and infectious positivism. She translates onto a canvass an illustration of her perceptions enthralled in emotional and spiritual growth at the time of creation. The imagery and symbolism she uses become a unique gateway in moving people, helping them to see the bigger picture and the roles that each of us has the potential to play.
