I have always loved Art and have been painting for years, mainly in Oils but also Pastels, Acrylics and Oil Bars. I enjoy drawing with pencils, charcoal and pens, occasionally doing ink and watercolour drawings. My art is varied, sketching and painting landscapes, buildings, still life and flowers. A recent challenge has been a series of paintings depicting forestry and the harvesting of wood.
I still attend classes and draw inspiration from the other participants as well as the tutors.
I have an Arts degree from the Open University and a Level 5 Portfolio Preparation Course. I am a member of the Cruthu Art group and exhibit at Russborough. I have exhibited at Butler House during Kilkenny Arts week, also at Dunlavin Arts festival, the Pigyard gallery in Wexford and at the Carlow Arts Festival where I was part of the Barrow Valley group. I teach Art locally and really enjoy seeing artists developing and finding art so enjoyable.
