The memory of the moment, the crunch of my feet on the ground, the tangle of growth, and the expansive views, the individuality of each tree, the morning light, the purple sky caused by the yellow of the land still in my eye, remembered colours and the joy of being there.

ABOUT SINEAD


 
 

"Subject matters most, the experience, the light, sounds, colours, the experience of being there, is invaluable. "

 
 
 

Why I work

Our art history is inspirational and the love of art making and originality remains a constant.

What I believe

Having fun and enjoying the process without fear makes for a great working day.Integrity and honesty seems an absolute essential in the making of great art.
