New Ocean Collection 2020/21

Delighted to let you know that I am working on a series of ocean themed paintings for my Ocean Collection 2020/21.

I intend exhibiting these new contemporary paintings in exhibitions this year, provided Covid19 restrictions have eased by then. They will comprise of 32 pieces of visual art in oil, acrylic and mixed media. 

Living on the South Coast of Ireland, my work is greatly influenced by the ocean and all its amazing marine life. When I made the decision to complete a large collection over a year ago, the theme of the collection was a very easy decision for me.  Through my Ocean Collection I wish to highlight our urgent need to Protect the Oceans and all the diverse marine life that live there.  I hope through my art this message will be heard.  

Collection Update: Many of the paintings created this far are vibrant and textured paintings filled with intrigue and originality.

January 2021 update: I am nearly there and currently working on painting #30 in the studio. I sold 2 of the collection late last year which was a lovely surprise so I need to paint 4 more paintings to complete the collection of 32 ! I am getting very excited as I am getting so close to completing the whole collection and looking forward to bringing it out to share with the public.

I will  keep you posted.

 

Under The Sea Glass Collection

The colourful collection of painted glass magnets ‘Under the Sea‘ have been selling very well.  I will have to paint more soon as they are very popular for small gifts for all occassions.

New Butterfly Range

I created a new Butterfly Range of painted glass magnets over the summer months.

I collected photos of butterflies in the wild for ideas on the designs and colours for the new magnets.

Out and About

I make regular trips to the West of Ireland to enjoy the  Burren Landscape on The Wild Atlantic Way with the camera and easel. Check out these links for some great Landscape Photographs and pretty seashells collected for my Shell Tiles and Children’s Shell Names. 

From my Ocean Art Range, here are 3 colourful Shell Tiles which make a lovely display on the timber easels.   They are from the Marine Glass Design. 

Please note: Commissions are available for shell tile colour matching with room decor. Favourite seashells can also be requested on your shell tiles if I have them available.  Just send an email to discuss.
