About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. Commenced a masters by research in 2014.

  5. So many paintings in so many unusual and talented ways. Especially love the sculpture of the artist where the viewer becomes the painting, and the wall of crumbling paint, a reminder of the splendor that once was. I have a very talented cousin who spends much of her time exploring uninhabited buildings, old schools, churches, and prisons, train stations and apartments, even a sanitarium once. Don’t know how she finds them or gets into so many places that look like they would be restricted, but the images she gets are amazing. Like you, she finds beauty in odd places where the rest of us might only see trash. Of course, the image of the Renaissance cathedral is spectacular, but so is the car. Beauty emerges from your vision, Irene. Thanks for letting me see it too.

    • Yes I agree. It was a great idea for the sculpture. You are supposed to feel you are looking over his shoulder at what he is painting.

      I’m glad you could see the beauty in all of them Sharon. As an artist you probably have a very good eye for colour, positioning and perhaps the abstract.
      I love sharing them with you so the pleasure is all mine.
