As a child, there was something about those balloon hats and balloon animals that made me beg my parents to buy me one.  I would sit intently and carefully watch the artists as they walked from table to table at restaurants fashioning different items from balloons, secretly hoping my table would be next.  The fascination with the fact that almost anything can be made from balloons has remained in me until this day, which is why the story of Irina Patterson is so wonderful.

 

Irina Patterson - Russian Queen of Balloons!

 

Irina Patterson grew up in Soviet Russia during the Cold War, where she was the daughter of an engineer and teacher.  She eventually went to medical school and became a physician in the city where she lived, Izhevsk.  Although Irina loved working as a doctor, she was bothered by the sights she often saw.  That is when Irina’s life took a turn as she began corresponding with an American psychologist who’s picture she saw in a magazine.  The two eventually married and Irina re-located to Miami in 1992.  Instead of continuing her career in medicine, Irina tried her hand in modeling and public relations.  But one day she came across a man twisting balloons into animals and was instantly hooked!  Creating balloon sculptures allowed Irina to use the creativity she has always had inside.  After much practice, Irina says that there is now nothing she can’t make.  She’s been challenged to everything from alligators to butterflies to Shaquille O’Neal!

What’s the best way to add spice to your next party?  With balloons of course!  It’s certainly a different kind of entertainment to consider, loved by kids and adults alike (if you're anything like me that is!).   Irina can be contacted for bookings at goahead_33167@yahoo.com.

 

If you’re in Miami, visit Irina in Coconut Grove or Coral Gables, where she is constantly entertaining tourists.  See how she can turn balloons into artwork right before your eyes!  You can purchase some of Irina’s balloon art at cafepress.com, (Irina is right, balloons are extremely photogenic!).  Take some time to enjoy the beauty of balloon art!
