CHECK OUT SUMMER PRINT OFFERS
I was born in Belfast and have lived in America, Germany and Portugal. I studied art at university and developed my skills in oil painting as well as ceramics. I first exhibited at the Agora gallery in New York in 2006 and since then have generated a great interest in my work with further exhibitions in Dublin and London. I am proud to have works in private collections in Colorado, Dublin, London and Malaysia.
My subject matter is focused on Irish landscapes and seascapes and feature places that are familiar to me, often visited with my family from an early age. I paint mostly in oil and my work is influenced by the places I visit or the things that I see, a castle by the coast or a tree in the garden. I enjoy creating images full of vibrant colour combinations in some ways similar to a stainless window effect.
Since 2019 I have worked hard to expand my portfolio creating a variety of original pieces that are available in a number of Art Galleries including; The Yard Gallery Holywood, Eaking Gallery Belfast, Hallows Gallery Belfast Mount 10 Gallery Carrickfergus The Puffin Gallery Ballycastle Inklöver Gallery Hillborough and Moira.
In addition I have produced a range of Gíclee Art Prints that are proving to be very popular, these can be purchased online or through the galleries listed above as well as 'The Pantry @ the Dark Hedges and The Causeway visitors Centre.
I am currently working on some new coastal images which I'm hoping to exhibit in Belfast in the Autumn.
Many Thanks ...Desie
