Irene Georgopoulou

Name:  Irene Georgopoulou
Bio: There is a growing trend among artists to maintain a website and a blog and maybe a Facebook page too; some eschew the website, and keep only a blog. This is fine if, as in the case of Jean-Charles Peyrouny, the blog is well thought-out and intelligently designed so that it works as a website, with well-signalled gallery pages. Other blogs might well express the artist’s thoughts and travels, but have disproportionately little in the way of pictorial content. I tend not to review those blogs, unless they are an adjunct to an up-to-date website.
I have been in two minds about mentioning if an artist is in Facebook. Some artists are quite happy to have a public FB page, while maintaining a private one as well. Others have what appears to be more a "Fanbook" with an unmanageable amount of “Friends” (Daniel Greene has, as of today’s date, 1858 FB Friends).
All this is by way of preamble to Irene Georgopoulou. Irene has a website that is full of pictorial content; her blog is also picture-based; and she is very active on Facebook.
In Irene’s case, had she only the website, she should be featured here; likewise had she only the blog. So I strongly recommend you to visit both.
Irene Georgopoulou was born in Athens, Greece in 1964. She always wanted to paint but life got in the way; she finally got to start her career in 2006 and has since progressed apace. For the most part she is self-taught although she has has attended workshops led by professional artists. She is a member of International Guild of Realism and the Pastel Guild of Europe. She was a finalist in the April/May 2009 edition of International Artist Magazine flowers and gardens competition.
