My motto is: "Everyone is creative!"

With Makings & Musings I run  creative courses, make illustrations for lots of different projects and in my shop you can find prints and original art that I have made. 

I love being involved in lots of different activities and I thrive when I am creative.

I illustrate live at events, run workshops for groups, I illustrate for magazines, website and sustainable businesses,  I run creative sessions with people who are starting their creative journey and I made Makings & Musings a place where you can connect with others and share your art.  

More than anything I want build a creative community where people feel free to learn, connect, experiment and find inspiration in one another.

My monthly newsletter is super full of creative tips, behind the scenes of Makings & Musings and updates on new courses. 

If you have any questions about any of these subjects, I am always happy to have a chat. 

I love to talk about all things creative,

My email address is contact@makingsandmusings.com

 

I look forward to  getting to know you! 

Warm wishes, 

Irene 

The Makings & Musings Creative Community

The Makings & Musings Creative Community is a place to connect with other creatives. We are all at different stages of our creative journey but we have one thing in common. We love to be creative.

Painting, drawing, sketch-booking, journalling. Colour pencils, markers, paint or charcoal, all crafts and materials are welcome here. 

As a Makings & Musings Creative you have access to tons of previous art classes and you can connect to others in the Creative Community Group. 

 

Community Members can share the art they made, receive feedback, join one of my one-to-one creative mentoring sessions, learn about different materials and connect with creatives from around the globe.  ​​There are monthly art themes, art templates to use and regular life sessions to join into. 

 

The Makings & Musings Community is for all creatives. Fresh starters or seasoned artists, everyone is welcome here. 

I came to it as a total beginner but can imagine that someone with more experience would also have plenty to take away and enjoy. Anya

Really enjoyed Irene's charcoal drawing class. Irene made charcoal drawing techniques clear and easy to follow for someone with no prior experience. She was very attentive and gave time to each person at the class to give them tips.

Very inspiring and got me creating pictures I never knew I had in me - I hadn't touched a paintbrush since I was a child but in no time at all was blending colours and creating a masterpiece!

I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to enjoy some down time or looking to rediscover their artistic side.

Get to know me

Hi there, lovely to meet you!

My name is Irene and I am an illustrator from Holland, living in London. I founded Makings and Musings with the mission to help busy people find their creative flow through mindfulness and creative workshops.

I love being engrossed in lots of different projects and creative activities. If you are looking for me you can often find me in my studio, working on one of my illustrations or out and about, chatting to people and hosting some kind of event. 

I thrive when I have lots of variety in my day and I love meeting new people so if you have an idea for a creative project, please do not hesitate to get in touch. 

I teach weekly classes, develop online courses and Illustrate for children's books, editorials and products and packaging designs. 

Mindful Creativity,
