Irma has always been fascinated with color and her primary interest in painting is focused on color relationships.  Her work has the ability to be seen simultaneously as landscape and abstract paint surface.  This perception of her work creates a duality which holds our attention while we digest different realities of her painting.  She strives to produce a compelling visual experience in its own right, rather than convey information or illustrate an idea.


She received her formal training at the Academy of Art and the School of the Art Institute, both in Chicago, IL. Irma maintained a studio in New York City until 1985 and her paintings are in numerous private, corporate and institutional collections in the United States and Europe.  Currently her principal affiliation is with Landing Gallery in Rockland, Maine.
