Irena is a Devon-based artist. She has held successful solo exhibitions regionally as well as showing in group and open exhibitions including the recent South West Academy Open Exhibition at Gloss.
Paper-cutting techniques have, in recent years, dominated her practice. It was whilst working on a multi-cultural art-in-schools project that she returned to paper cutting, teaching children in primary schools how to create their own paper-cuts in the tradition of the Polish paper-cutters. She continues to run workshops for adults and children and give talks and demonstrations about this art form to art groups, galleries and schools.
