Artist
If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?
Painting
I am...
I am a professional Artist based in Co. Wicklow, Ireland.
About my artwork
My present work is figurative and is mostly in oils on canvas.
I am currently pre-occupied with the sea and water, especially its interaction with the human figure. I also love the vivid contrasts of colour which are in evidence in sunnier climes - anyone from Ireland is usually forced to go abroad in order feed this visual hunger-we are sun starved!
Artists I like
My favourite artist of all time is the American, Edward Hopper. I also love both Andrew and Jamie Wyeth. Other favourites include Caravaggio, Velasquez, Georges de la Tour and Wright of Derby.

Gina,
good luck with the BP Portrait entry. i have never tried that one.... I have tried the RA Summer show, but never got anywhere. Keep trying eh! Sales have been on a big go slow recently. I have been teaching more to supplement sales, but would rather have more from sales. Maybe chance to work up some new ideas ready for the good times!!!!

We live at the top of a hill, so we get the big skies like you get at the coast, but unfortunately it does not have the same impact when it is above a muddy patch of garden, filled with chickens. Could be worse though!

What are you working on at the moment?

Best wishes
Denise

I just wasn't there long enough......!

I definately can't get enough of the sea, and would love to live by it again.

Best wishes
Denise
