Wearable Art

Hand Painted Jewellery - Earlier this year I began working on a range of hand painted jewellery. Some of the finished pieces are now available to purchase at It's A Wrap Gift & Art Studio, Waterford https://www.facebook.com/Its-A-Wrap-Gift-Arts-Studio-264016590702515/ and some are available on the SHOP JEWLELLERY page of my website. I am working on the pendants and brooches along side my paintings on paper/board and canvas and will be adding new pieces to the range continuously.


A recent commission

These three paintings in acrylic on board (H115xW50xD2cm each) were commissioned by a couple for the entrance hallway of their home.

       

London St.Patrick's Day Festival 2017

I was lucky enough to be one of the artists/crafters taking part in this year's London St.Patrick's Day Festival in Trafalgar Square. Galway Artist Fiona Concannon https://fionaconcannonartist.com/ and I shared a stand outside the National Gallery where we met people from all over the world as well as some entertaining and interesting Irish characters. Our work was very well received and we were thoroughly entertained throughout the day by all the acts on the main stage, from Jack L to Gavin James.

Work in progress in the studio inspired by a recent visit to the Irish National Heritage Park in Wexford

First stage of this painting in oil on canvas. I blocked out the white 'tree' shapes with masking tape so that when I do put colour over these areas it will be pure colour on the canvas and will contrast with the more built up areas. That is the plan for now but it may all change during the painting process.
