  • Biography

    Irma is an abstract mixed media artist working with acrylic paint and collage at her studio in Norfolk County, Ontario. She is a graduate of OCAD (The Ontario College of Art and Design) and the University of Toronto with a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art History. Irma has been involved in the arts since an early age. Her biggest inspiration has been her mother, an artist as well, who always encouraged Irma to pursue the visual arts.
    Irma's work often reflects current events or is affected by personal experiences. During her studies at OCAD, Irma travelled to Florence, Italy, and later, as part of her studies at the University of Toronto, she travelled to Israel to work at an archaeological excavation site. Irma also curated and exhibited her work in an exhibition of Lithuanian-Canadian artists in Chicago, USA. She has also participated in numerous exhibitions in both Lithuania and Latvia in 1992-3. These experiences abroad always had a profound impact on the artist's work.
    Irma has been exhibiting steadily throughout South Western Ontario for the last decade. This is her second time this year exhibiting at the Westland Gallery in London, Ontario. This year, Irma also had a solo exhibition at the Ingersoll Creative Arts Centre; a three-person show at the Tillsonburg Station Arts Center; and at the Collectors’ Gallery of Art in Calgary, Alberta.
    She is currently showing at the Paris Bohemian Gallery in Paris, Ontario and this November she will be exhibiting at the Tillsonburg Station Arts Centre once again. She is also planning a mother and daughter exhibition at the Woodstock Art Gallery in 2024. As well, Irma has been exhibiting her work during the Norfolk Studio Tour at her own studio for the past six years.
