The Gift Shop "Artist of the Month"

Irma Reinboth is the "Artist of the Month" for August here at The Gift Shop.

Irma Reinboth (REI) was born and raised in Mount Clemens. She has been painting in oils for many years. She recently began painting directly onto wood using dye, and then embellishing with oil pen or ink, in a process known as: "Wood Batik". Irma learned this process from a well-known Hawaiian artist named Ricky Pa.
In her own words: " I love seeing how each painting I create is going to turn out. The grain and hardness of  each piece of wood takes the dye differently, making every painting unique."
