I developed my signature style, fusing abstraction with realism to recreate the gentle beauty of Ireland.
I paint the way I do because I am interested in the hidden design within what I see. As there are so many good photographers, I feel there is no pressure for me to paint a scene realistically; this is why I paint impressions of what I see, or my expression of it.
Exhibiting regularly at many venues in Belfast, Dublin and the Mall Gallery in London, I have sold my paintings to both private and public collections around the world, including in Arizona, Brussels, Australia and Spain and also to the Ulster Television Permanent Collection.
A past president of Ulster Society of Women Artists, I have exhibited on numerous occasions with Ulster Women Artists, Art Society of Ulster and Ulster Watercolour Society at many prestigious venues, including, Belfast Waterfront Hall, the Ulster Hall, Stormont Parliament Buildings, Lisburn Island Centre, Castle Espie and Belfast Castle Gift Shop & Gallery, where I was the gallery manager and resident artist.
One of my favourite works is Vermeer’s painting of ‘The Milkmaid.’ I feel that if I look at it long enough she will look up from pouring the milk and smile at me. have always had a keen interest in photography and it has become such a huge hobby amongst many.
