Shop for artwork by Irina Velman. Purchase canvas prints, framed prints, tapestries, posters, greeting cards, and more. I am New Zealand based artist and painting the natural world is my passion. I love seeing how a painting transforms the wall into a seashore, a garden, a river bank or a peaceful countryside. Through my art, I offer people a simple reminder to pause...
