ABOUT THE ARTIST: Irene Sheri was born in the city of Belgorod-Dnestrovsky, Ukraine where, as a young child, her passion for art began. It all started when Irene's older brother Vasily, then 9 years old, was given a set of paints for his birthday. “I am in love with my canvases,” says Irene. “It is the beauty and passion of painting and the results that come from those feelings that drive me to fill the canvas every day.”
Like her obsession for art, Irene’s love for Disney began at an early age. As a little girl, she formed a bond with Mickey Mouse and like many children she thought of Mickey as another childhood friend. “It seems to me that we grew up together,” she says of Disney’s famous mouse, “I really believed that we were peers.”
Irene would grow up to enjoy many successes and came to be recognized as one of Russia’s most gifted young artists. Today her award winning fine art is collected, exhibited and celebrated in a variety of museums and galleries around the world, and in a beautiful, poetic return to her own youth, she contributes to the Disney Fine Art collection with her whimsical portraits of children immersed in the joyful exploration of their own imaginations, the way young Irene Sheri, once did with her own childhood friend, Mickey Mouse.
