Her story

Irene Stuart Apon (McAvoy) was born in Glasgow Scotland; raised in Toronto, Ontario; and lives in north east Edmonton with her husband, Fred. They have five adult children and eleven grandchildren all living in the Edmonton area. Irene has always been interested in art, drawing and painting with acrylics. In 2002 she joined Pro’s Art Atelier School where she has been painting with oils. Her trips to study the masters in New York have really opened her eyes and mind to the looser, bolder brush strokes as seen in the works of John Singer Seargent and Sorolla. Irene has participated in many workshops with Gene Prokop, Robert Johnson, Zhaoming Wu and Gregg Kreutz. Also she has shown her work at APEGA GALA art show, Future Masters show at Royal Glenora, Pro’s Gallery, Art Walk, With These Hands,Salisbury indoor market, The Carrot Cafe and Arts on the Avenue Pop up Market Her two years in Ethiopia with Hope International Development Agency has given her a passion for raising funds through her art work and jewelry design. Some of her works demonstrate her love for Ethiopia, the people, culture and landscapes. Others show her love of nature, family and children. All of her works show her passion for colour and her connection with the deep spiritual side of her life. From Earth to Soul https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmee9dkYDCY
