Coffee + Books + Art = Me

Hi there.

My name is Irina and I am the artist behind Picture in a Dream. I was born in Kazakhstan (in the former Soviet Union) but now live with my wonderful husband, two beautiful daughters and one slightly annoying cat in sunny California.

I am a self proclaimed coffee addict and bookaholic and I love creating functional art that will be a part of people's daily lives. So many important moments happen over a cup of morning coffee or or evening tea and I love the idea of adding just a bit of coziness to them with my creations.

Most of my work happens at my kitchen table to the soundtrack of my children's voices and I wouldn't have it any other way.

The books you see in many of the product photos are some of my all time favorites (Diana Gabaldon's Outlander Series features prominently) and a little private reminder and inspiration to me every time I look at them.

One of my favorite things about the work I do here is getting to know my customers whether through convos or custom requests. Every story is different and lovely in its own way.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for stopping by, exploring my shop and taking the time to read my story!

Irina from Picture in a Dream.

Welcome to Picture in a Dream. Here you can find hand painted one of a kind pottery, ceramic and glass functional art. Each piece is painted free hand without the use of stencils or tracing. This is a labor of love and I hope it shows in my work.
