Irene Verdoorn

Irene Verdoorn, (born in Gouda 1959), has breathed color and shape since childhood. “I was born with a pen in my hand,” she says, “and very inspired by my artistic grandfather who interacted with the Bergen painters around the 1950s.”
It was a logical choice to go to the Art Academy in Utrecht in 1979, where she graduated in etching and lithography.
For a long time Irene made abstract art, where she was particularly passionate about textures. This preference can still be seen in the consistent layering of her current work, the motifs of which often come from lace, richly woven fabrics and flora.

As an artist and person, Irene has a deep sense of subtle atmospheres. After she once saw an apparition of an angel with wings made of branches and flowers, she was both impressed and inspired. Immediately drawn to explore this theme in depth, she spent seven years creating angels with free interpretations of wings, while simultaneously developing a completely new vocabulary as a digital artist.
A two-meter high and well-known angel made by her can be found in the hall of Thermen Soesterberg.

Digital painting continues to fascinate Irene and she currently mainly produces female figures in dreamy atmospheres and dream portraits on commission. Due to the many details that characterize her works, the artist's images inspire you to delve into them again and again. A search for magical worlds and images always seems to evolve, as if invisible worlds want to become tangible. It gives her artwork a distinctly mystical feeling.
