Interested in Owning a Piece?

Should you want to purchase something , the procreate canvas prints/collages run €250-€1500 . They are limited to an edition of 10, canvas prints with paint overlay and handsigned, which you can order to the size best suited to your living environment and budget. The oil on canvas mandala paintings will be in the range of €2,750-€5,000 when they are available for sale. The beach art will be commemorated in photography in the near future.

I believe that to live a creative life is to have life sprit at my back – it is glorious and something I have always wanted.  The dream was put aside after earning my BFA from the University of Colorado when I found out that fame – for its own sake – is hollow.  That is another story but just to say there was a lot of buzz when the zappa quilt was unveiled (now in a Hard Rock in Biloxi Mississippi).  I found that when people talk to you because they think you are famous they aren’t looking at you, they are looking over your shoulder at something you have done – creepy!

 

I don’t regret the years my art went underground as I learned digital work by doing scrapbooks (elaborate scrapbooks) and the technology had a chance to develop to where it is now.  Artists today who have the skills to draw and paint as I was trained, also have the luxury of working in layers and producing multiple print runs easily.

 

So now, like (can I say like a butterfly emerging from its crysalis?)  I have the pleasure of returning to the dream.  I bring with me 20 years of planning and thinking about the mandala series, a great group of artists that I work with in the Kinsale Arts Association, the status of the one woman shows etc that I did in my youth.  I emerge ready to go

 

Thanks you for your interest – I look forward to your comments.

Work Pre 2020

From 1976 to 1990 I saw my future as a famous artist!  The Zappa quilt opening in 193 ended that and I put off my art career until later in life

The Family Series

Sometimes my family feels dark and dangerous and I see people acting out of less than their highest or truest selves.  At other times it helps me understand the meaning and value of love across differences.

The Personal Transformation Suite

A circle can contain all there is of our inner and outer life – This series branches towards the mandala series which I see as the mainstay of my work.
