Irene van der Laan is my name and I was born in Dordrecht, the Netherlands in 1981.

I started drawing as soon as I was able to hold a pencil. Now I paint as well.

As an art therapist  I have found a way to combine my passion for art and helping people.


Nature, people, thoughts, music and emotions are a beautiful and endless source of inspiration for me to experiment with. My paintings are like daydreams, colourful, an ever changing visualisation of what goes on in my head. I love working with all kinds of materials, but I prefer blacklight paint, acrylics and ink. 


“Transforming my imagination to art and letting my dreams come to life is a great source of energy. Drawing complex geometric forms helps me to bring order out of the chaos of my thoughts. “
