A selection of paintings are available as greetings cards and as limited edition giclee prints. The Kilmacurragh paintings are available as A5 prints. Commissions are accepted. Prices for original work ranges from €250 to €750.
KILMACURRAGH THROUGH THE ARTISTS EYE
This is an exhibition currently showing at the National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin. Six artists have taken part and I have 19 paintings of rare plants from Kilmacurragh in the exhibition. The show will run until Monday the 25th of August.
Cornus capitata 'Kilmacurragh Rose' is seen here.
BOTANICAL ART CLASSES
I will be teaching the techniques of botanical watercolour at An Grianan in Co. Louth from 11th to the 14th August this year. Contact An Grianan at www.an-grianan.ie for further details.
I also teach a small class on a Monday afternoon in Booterstown. The class number is limited to 8 to allow for individual teaching time. At present the class is full and I am hoping to start a second class on Monday mornings in Booterstown. Please contact me for details.
The illustrated irish alphabet featuring native flowers of Ireland is a group exhibition by the Irish Society of Botanical artists. It will be shown in Derry from Monday the 11th of August and will then travel to the Waterfront in Belfast in September. There is a beautiful catalogue available of the exhibition which is fast becoming a collector's item. Contact the Irish Society of Botanical Artists for details. I am delighted to be part of this project.
FARMLEIGH PLANT FAIR
I will be attending the plant fair at Farmleigh, Phoenix Park, Dublin on Sunday 24th of August and will have cards, prints and original paintings for sale.
