My family and I moved to Ireland nineteen years ago and have made it a home. After raising three sons and working in various retail positions for many years I started painting gifts for friends. Using some old oil paints I found in our attic I started to draw from my past experience as a visual merchandiser. My friends began to encourage me to sell my artwork. Therefore I set myself up on Merrion Square in June 2016. As a volunteer with the Halston St Credit Union, I travelled around Ireland and found inspiration from nature pieces. Having dabbled with various techniques and strokes, I am currently focusing on wild flowers from The Burren in Co. Clare.
