About Irene Ruby

Hi my Creatives, 

My name is Irene and I am an illustrator and art teacher from Holland, living in London.

Before I worked as an illustrator, I studied law and I had an career in the City of London, working in Insurance. Although there were many things I loved about working in the big city, I always knew that my real passion is art . I finally made the decision to quit my job and start my own business. I am so happy to be busy pursuing my passion and although the journey is scary and full of new challenges I love every minute of it. 

Growing up I was always making and creating. From drawing a daily mermaid when I was six years old to adding flares on my jeans in high school, my room was always full with various projects that I had on the go.


The school I went to was an Steiner/Waldorf school. This means that next to the usual classes I learned to knit, felt, do woodwork, painted and we even learned how to blacksmith once a year!

My Illustration style is a mix between colourful fantasy worlds and darker ink drawings. All my illustrations have a magical touch to them. 

Go to my portfolio to see my most recent illustrations.

Why I started

Makings and Musings

I started Makings and Musings wanted to follow my passion and I really love showing people their own creativity.

Being creative has brought me so much joy and I want to proof to people that you do not need to be 'good' at drawing to feel how relaxing and rewarding it is to create something. 

If you go the the blog page on this website you can read more about why I started Makings and Musings . I taIk about starting a creative business, about topics related to making art and being creative and about lots of other things that inspire me such as minimalism, the environment, how to find your passion, how to stay motivated and many more.

If you would like to have a conversation about commissioning a piece of art, please email me or fill out the contact form here

hope to meet you soon in one of my workshops,
