A Little More About Me
Known for her bold, impressionistic florals and landscapes, Niagara -on-the-Lake artist Irene MacKenzie grew up in Fort Frances, Ontario. Her first passion was a box of crayons and the damaged rolls of paper her Dad brought home from the paper mill where he was employed. On her thirteenth birthday her parents gave her a box of oil paints, and few canvasses and brushes. After using up the canvases, every surface available from glass bottles, wood panels and even arborite became the next masterpiece!
After teaching public school for twelve years and studying with art teachers around the world, she began pursuing her art career full time. Her creativity and versatility combined to produce captivating images. Irene is constantly inspired by the unlimited source of beauty of the Niagara Region.
Irene appreciates that her paintings are enjoyed not only locally but in many countries around the world! .
