Ireland is one of my favorite places and I began painting its landscapes in 2019. Before I visited Ireland, I thought only about the idyllic rolling green hills. After my first time traveling the island, I realized how varied the landscape is and how the rapidly changing and often dramatic weather impacts the land and the sea. There are so many colors aside from those 40 shades of green we’ve all heard about. There are the deep blues and rich turquoises of the ocean, vast fields of purple heather spotted with golden flowers (furze) and the color of the light as the damp air travels over a hill. Other impressive landscapes that have made an appearance in my work are the Cliffs of Moher and other rocky terrain.
