At a time when the world seemed to be upside down and a bustling of noise I found my comfort in seeking stillness. Looking for the corners where I could find silence away from the roaring noise, some sense of peace within me, a moment of calm.
These pieces are snippets into my stillness, reflecting moments from peaceful memories looking at the land in all its beauty.
I’m a watercolour artist from Belfast Northern Ireland where I live with my husband, daughter and very snuggly cat.
I love painting memories, little moments of a time and place. Emotions and feelings, weather and light all expressed in delicate watercolour. Much of my inspiration is taken from the landscape of home and memories of travels throughout the captivating countryside of Ireland.
At the moment I’m excited by merging traditional watercolour techniques with my more contemporary style of mark making combined with hand and machine stitched embroidery techniques that creates an interesting juxtaposition. I love the challenge of creating a balance out of the contrast and sense of peace and tranquillity. My aim is producing work that the viewer can identify with, that can stir a calming emotion bringing a restfulness and quietude.
