© Irene Scheinmann

Studied painting and printmaking in England and France, working at Atelier 63 in Paris and with Julian Trevelyan in London.

An elected member of Trace, the French printmaking association, and of the California Society of Printmakers, she founded Print Europe in 1991.

Scheinmann’s work is an amalgam of the seen with the imagined. Landscape and the human figure are a vital source of inspiration; especially the rock formations on the island of Hvasser in southern Norway. The indentations and fractures in the rocks suggest new visions which are then translated into paintings, original prints and mixed Media works.
As a printmaker, Scheinmann works mainly  in intaglio techniques and has been developing collogravure for the past few years, which she sometimes combines with carborundum.

Scheinmann has exhibited widely in Europe, The United States, and the Far East and her work is represented in public and private collections
