About the Artist
I’ve lived in Limerick all my life and enjoyed many creative pursuits as a child. Although I hadn’t painted in over twenty years since Leaving Cert Art, I found myself continually looking at Impressionist work and imagining a paintbrush in my hand. I finally took the hint and returned to art class.
My original IT career led me to rigid, quality-focused roles and I recognise now how limited I had become by the logical, analytical left-brain over the years. My own “Declutter Therapy” modality has been instrumental in me painting again – “letting go” has given me the freedom and peace of mind to create vibrant, soulful abstract artwork. Reiki has also been very influential on my work; I find expressing freely through colour and energy very moving.
Art is a powerful healing tool and I’m inspired to create artwork that makes people think and feel. I love how revealing and magical that abstract art can be for both the artist and the viewer. I set up Lightbridge Art in 2020 to offer original acrylic on box canvas paintings and limited-edition giclée prints. Sharing my artwork with others brings me such joy!
