Irma started making her first wood carvings at the beginning of the '80s in Argentina when looking for a way of expression.
In her pictures she uses only wood's natural colour and grains. She achieves this from rests of sawmills, the forest ground, the lakes and streams banks.
Her production goes from pictures to everyday objects: bread baskets, sewing baskets, trays, boxes, photo frames, among others.
Irma can often be found at Sunday Upmarket, Brick Lane (stall AR01)
In 2001 Irma introduced her work in the UK, exhibiting at Camden Lock, Green Park, Chelsea, Highgate, the Red Ban Gallery of Kings Lynn, and, in 2007, the Greenwich Artists Collective.
These are so delicate, I love the use of natural and found materials. I also like the fact that Irma taught these techniques to a number fo schools in Argentina and these techniques are still being taught and developed by a new generation or artists.
