A Little Bit About Me..

Being raised and based on the Dingle Peninsula in Ireland has provided an infinite well of inspiration for me. The wild and mesmerising landscape coupled with its rich history of artists, musicians and storytellers has formed a foundation for my creative passion. There is something magic and otherworldy in the air here that I strive to capture in my work.

Art has always been a big part of my life. I have been drawing, painting, and making things since I was a kid. I am lucky to have had some extraordinarily strong and creative female influences in my life that inspired me greatly to go after my dreams. In a way, I think my work is a lot about embracing this intrinsic femininity, of making the things around me feel beautiful. My paintings are a testament to the simple joy I derive from applying paint to a surface and to my love affair with colour. They are deeply rooted in the process and finding meaning in what I do.

My Creative Process

It is important to me to keep developing my skills and exploring new directions. I love allowing serendipity and chance to elicit new discoveries and opportunities in my work.  Recently, I have been pushing the abstract qualities in my paintings and building upon my personal vocabulary of shapes and symbols. My paintings are an expression of my life and of the things that bring me joy. However, the more I put myself into the work, the more I believe in the emotional connection that my art has with the viewer.  My hope is to create paintings that lift your spirit and that you can both find and lose yourself in them, in the same way that I do.

My creative process is quite cyclical. I work towards creating 2 to 4 painting collections a year and try to reflect the seasons in this way. Each collection is like a page from my diary of a particular season in my life - infused with subtle musings, personal signs, and raw honesty.

Thank you for stopping by – I’m really glad you have discovered my art and I hope it can bring you a lot of joy – as it has me.

How it all started..

Someone asked me recently, how I got started with my art journey and what are the things that keep me inspired and moving forward. It was such a lovely conversation that I thought it might be nice to turn it into my first journal post. So here it goes, the story of how it all began. You might want to grab a cuppa for this one, it’s a bitín long.
