About my Gallery

This website and the artwork shown here was created to the glory of God for the display of his splendour and to spread his name.  

Most of my work is not explicitly religious but I hope my work falls under the theme of Phillipians 4:8 "Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things."

I attend Abundant Life Christian Church, Post Office lane.  http://www.abunlife.com/

About Me:

I'm pretty much from Limerick, though born in Belfast as my parents moved here when I was a baby. I attended Laurel Hill Coláiste where my Art teacher Theresa Hegarty got me off to a great start. I also had classes with Anne Fitzgerald, an internationally recognised artist. I then studied Landscape Horticulture at UCD for three years, but eventually did a certificate in art instead at LCFE.  

 I'm a mother of three (two boys aged 7 and 5 and a little girl aged 2). I had a break from painting after I had my boys, but took up painting and sketching again in 2011 after a miscarriage. It was really to remind myself of all the positive moments in life.

Since then I'm self taught and particularly inspired by late 19th and early 20th century Art.  I generally paint plein-air or from life though I do make use of photos and sketches also. I work in various media including  acrylics, watercolour and oil paint. I have a direct loose style and often make use of flowers as my subject matter, though also drawn to figures and landscapes.

The Gallery is a public display of my work. It is not in the Public Domain but you may save or print images for your own personal enjoyment.

Please contact me if you wish to use any image or associated text commercially  or for a another web site.
