For Asia-based Dutch artist Irene Hoff, the world is out of balance, which is evidenced by both the human and environmental challenges we are currently faced with. Irene's aim is to encourage and support humanity in reclaiming their sovereignty, in overcoming limiting beliefs, and in discovering their personal talents - always with the intention of moving people towards a more passionate and carefree, lighthearted life.
Irene is internationally recognized for her colorful mixed media art collage style. One of her favorite muses is female figures, where faces are partly hidden behind a patchwork of hand-torn paper and paint. She also fiercely beliefs in magic and dreaming outside the box, to create and attract whatever it is you want in your life, "The art of Magic". She uses beautiful magical animals to communicate this energy to the world.
Among her achievements, Irene is proud to have had one of her wildlife paintings signed by nature warrior and actor Leonardo DiCaprio. Irene subsequently donated this canvas to a project raising funds to protect Asia's Wildlife in 2016. More recently, she was published in '100 Artists of the Future' - A Collector's Edition, curated by The Contemporary Art Curator Magazine in 2019-2020. She has had many exhibitions around the world. Among her most successful art shows, were the silent observers of the world in 2018 and 2019, at Deus Ex Machina in Bali. Irene has received several awards and was recently nominated in London for the 'Rise Art Prize'.

Take responsibility for where you are in life, do not be a victim. You are where you are, who you are, what you are because of the beliefs about yourself. Your beliefs are thoughts that you keep, consciously as well as unconsciously, accepting as the law in your life. Your can take your power back by recognizing that everything, good or bad, begins with you, with the self, by discovering what the lessons are to be learned, and its underlying beliefs that makes you attract unwanted situations.
