Irina believes that we should never stop learning and is always seeking to try new mediums, different techniques and subject matters through various workshops, talks and experiences. It’s important to remember that we don’t know everything and even what we do know is only a matter of opinion, hence we should always be open to change and respect others. That is the only way to grow and learn.

Message to the World:
"We are so busy with everyday tasks and so trapped in our own impression of the world that we fail to notice the beauty around, and I hope that my paintings will allow the viewer to see beauty of the everyday world. We don’t need to travel to exotic places to experience the beauty, we only need to open our eyes and minds and be ready to see. "
