about the art
The work is abstract in composition and is strongly influenced by the Irish landscape. The unpredictable changes of the Irish weather, the play of light and colour are a constant source of inspiration. She works on a series of paintings, each piece begins intuitively with the memory or significance of a time and place. As the layers build the work starts to engage with me, this is the point when I read the clues it is giving. Towards the end, the pace slows; changes become more considered and colours are refined so the painting keeps its energy.
