Irene Stapleford uses the bright world of nursery rhymes, bringing childhood imagination into the everyday realm. In glowing colors and swishy joyful strokes she paints the relationships between things—a humpty-dumpty and some artichokes, a dress and a pair of shoes, or a cat and a distant object of fascination. Revolving in a colorful, airy world theses subjects are both gentle and everyday but definitely enchanted. Irene is a mother of two and is highly influenced by the stories and rhymes that children are raised on. However she goes beyond rediscovering these worlds with an adults eye, she is blessed with the same observant, easily delighted powers that often leave people as they move into adulthood.
