I’m a practising artist and among other things, wife, mother, daughter, business woman, coffee lover, chocolate addict, blogger and I set up Beechmount Art Studio in 2014 to fulfill my lifelong dream of creating a space where everyone can explore their creative talents and learn the skills and techniques of all types of art and my first love, painting.
I graduated from Limerick School of Art & Design with a BA (Hons) Fine Art, specialising in Painting, receiving numerous awards and positive reviews of my work. I have also exhibited widely throughout Limerick and my native Galway. In my personal work, I strive to excel at portraiture and have been commissioned privately for many public and private figures throughout the west.
Since graduating, I have built up an accomplished reputation as an art instructor with GRETB (formerly Co. Galway VEC) for the last 8 years. I love to teach and believe everyone has some sort of artistic talent and it’s just a matter of figuring out what each student is best at. It’s not going to be instant, it will take time, a lot of mistakes, a little bit of luck and lots of tea but when you get there, it’s the best feeling in the world.
