Spiritual Abstract Art

Searching for light, both real and spiritual, elemental textures and evocative silhouettes. I paint to create a contemplative mood and awareness of the transcendent. My explorations sit between abstract and semi-abstract, referencing traditional religious themes with the visual language of 20th century abstraction and the luminescence of stained glass.


Artist Biography

Searching for Light: I am influenced by Baroque Italy, the sciences, early photography and symbolism. In oil paint I create layers of strong colour exploring how each layer interacts as it dries and the visual effects of ageing, scraping away or washing over. I use glazes of high quality pigments mixed with stand oil to create luminous textures and layers. My painting style moves between expressive and abstract, always with spiritual symbolism. In 2017 I discovered Cyanotype and its power to capture light and tell stories with symbols.

My hometown is Wexford, Ireland, where I regularly visit. I trained at the National College of Art and Design (NCAD) Dublin followed by an MA in Art Education at the Institute of Education, London, where I focused on Catholic readings of feminist art. I am a member of the Society of Catholic Artists, and Visual Artists Ireland. 
I live in Cornwall with my family, where I work from my home studio and teach Art at Truro High School for Girls.
