Irene Naested is a visual artist, published author and director of Art, Nature & Meditation. Irene will be selling two of her art teaching books as well as some of her paintings in her newly completed art studio above a double car garage, overlooking downtown Calgary. Irene gleans from nature the elements and principles of composition as a pathway in becoming grounded. She approaches her teaching as a form of meditative art making, as a means toward an understanding, and a method of communication to oneself and others. Currently, Irene has published some of her poetry and is working on combining words with images into her paintings. www.irenenaested.com
