racing extinction

In this series, species threatened by extinction are given a voice. Inspired and based on the work of the Australian wildlife photojournalist and activist Paul Hilton, Irene surrounds the animals by symbols reminding us that these creatures are on the verge of disappearing from the surface of our planet. As per her signature style, she integrates colorful elements and patterned paper onto the canvasses, often displaying alarming numbers, highlighting the beauty and the reality of each of the endangered species she paints. Irene frequently donates her ‘Racing Extinction’ Themed Art to contribute to raising funds in related charities. One of her wildlife paintings was signed by Nature Warrior Leonardo DiCaprio and sold at a global online auction.
