Irene grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia, and moved to Folly Beach SC in her mid-20's. She moved off the beach thanks to Hurricane Hugo in 1989, and made her way to the Blue Ridge Mountains on the western side of North Carolina in 1992.

When she moved Irene got a job at the shipping department of a craft supply store. The owners encouraged employees to try everything so that they could be tech support when customers called. She wove a rug, marbled paper, made candles, dyed fabric, painted on silk, sewed a pair of leather moccasins, knitted a few inches of a sweater, and then got her hands on polymer clay.

Ever since that fateful day in 1992, Irene has been working with polymer clay.

In 1999, Lark Books approached her about writing and producing work for a book that would have her name on the spine. The Weekend Crafter - Polymer Clay was published in 2000. "I'm darned proud of it, and Lark apparently liked it too, because I've authored two more books through them. My work's been featured in numerous Lark Books and other publications."

In 2001, Irene was accepted into the juried Southern Highland Craft Guild. As a member, she regularly provides educational demonstrations to visitors at the Folk Art Center on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Cultivating an appreciation for handmade items is an important part of being a guild member, and of being a working artist for that matter.

"I find that separating my work from my home keeps me focused and energized, so I work in a rented studio space in the heart of downtown Asheville."
