About The Artist
Welcome to My Website.
I hope you enjoy your visit and find that ideal gift or piece of original art work for your home, office, friends and family.
My name is Mary O’Donnell, I’m a self-taught artist with a passion for art and photography since a young age.
I studied art in school and have been painting ever since.
Last year I was delighted to receive a gift, of a week’s place in the summer art college for Landscape painting in the Burren. This took place in the Burren College of Art in Ballyvaughan Co. Clare and I enjoyed the course so much I returned in August, to complete a week in Abstract painting with local professional artists.
This time out, immersed in art and nature, gave me the focus and confidence to display my love of art and photography to a wider audience with this website.
I am a creative person who is inspired by nature and our stunning Irish coastlines and sweeping landscapes. My love of birds and nature was passed on to me by my late Dad who taught me to explore and appreciate the beauty and wonder of nature especially in our bird and marine life.
I am a native of Youghal, Co. Cork and have a wonderful partner and four children. I enjoy painting and creating in my studios in Youghal and in Fanore, Co. Clare.
Happiest travelling, exploring and drawing inspiration from our harbours, villages, historic buildings and lighthouses or sailing and boating around our exciting coasts. I can often be seen, hanging over cliffs with binoculars, camera and sketchbook to hand, exploring our coastal islands or collecting seashells along our sandy beaches.
I hope you enjoy my artwork and photography as much as I have had creating it and you find that perfect gift or art piece that you are looking for.
