Aly is a Northern Irish based Artist, Educator and Writer.
She is passionate about placing importance on everyday moments, objects and places in her oil paintings and pastel work.
Aly works from a studio in Belfast which is conducive to her family life with her husband and their three young boys.
Her practice is influenced heavily by her own childhood memories of growing up in a smallholding in the Irish countryside.
Themes of the familiar and familial can be traced back as far as her degree show in 2003 when her installation “Daddy’s bread” used 795 empty bread bags (of her father’s favourite loaf) to represent each week from when her Father passed until the opening of her final exhibition.
She was awarded a first class honours degree and a distinction in her Masters in Fine art which she completed following her degree.
Aly is passionate about helping women to know and to love themselves from their brain to their bones. She believes she is on a journey of self acceptance and invites women to join her. You can join aly’s self acceptance warriors and download her self acceptance e bundle which you can find here.
