Irina Dalmau is a Honduran microbiologist and for many years Irina has done art and crafts as therapy. She often works with metal wire, beads and sometimes other materials to create a piece. When she posts her art pieces on social media, they usually include a story related to her past, present or thoughts about mental health.

Her work is influenced by nature, Mayan and Lenca cultures from Honduras. Her art pieces have been showcased by Panduro and Finapärlor in their social media.

Every October she auctions a pink tree to support the fight against cancer. This year, her work was part of the Local Femmes Market, The Other Side Market Place and the Husby Konstsalong 2023.
