Irene Parsonage is a well known local artist who is displaying her work at Clover Downs for sale.
She finds inspiration from every day life, particularly native bush, beaches, rock formations and sand patterns – all things natural.
Irene received honours in art at High School and won local art competitions in her hometown of Hastings. She is self taught, having read many books and spent many hours mastering her own techniques. Having started with pastels, she moved onto acrylics and recently has been working with mixed media and contemporary art.
Her painting career has spanned 15 years and over that time the paintings have been sold to clients in America, England, Australia, Norway and all over New Zealand.
