Reception this Friday 6th Dec, 6 – 8 pm opened by John Behan RHA

Her motifs which include her well known crows and rooks are the means by which she conveys her vision of the world making “unimportant things important”. These paintings are a result of much thought and deliberation, they are heavily worked and reworked with every element carefully balanced.
