Art - a celebration of life on canvas!

I have been painting regularly for many years. I have attended classes in oils and acrylics. More recently I completed a watercolour course at the National College of Art and Design and exhibited at the college’s end of year annual exhibition.I enjoy painting a variety of subjects, particularly landscapes, seascapes and flowers. My paintings are inspired by the rugged landscapes of Ireland and the vibrant colours that emanate from its natural beauty through the seasons. The time I have to paint is very limited due to family and work commitments but when I do manage to find time to put brush to canvas I become totally absorbed and immersed in a world of my own. It truly is a form of therapy for the mind, body and soul.
