This piece was made with so much love for the Azalea behind and I so enjoyed making the little golf figures as they walked to the 13th hole at Augusta.
Bright pinks and blue shadows make up this piece which is perfect for any fan of the Masters.
Augusta National Golf Club is located in Augusta, Georgia. Founded by Bobby Jones and Cliff Roberts in 1932 and designed by Dr Alister MacKenzie, the original aim being a truly national club, as well as a winter retreat to play golf with his friends.
The site was formerly an indigo plantation, abundant with fauna.
This helped in the decision that every hole be named after a plant or shrub.
These were originally planted by Louis Alphonse Berckmans, son of the original owner of the land, along with Bobby Jones and Clifford Roberts on each hole.
Within the Augusta National Golf Club, there are actually two courses, the 18 hole championship course as well as a nine-hole par 3 course.
The modern game of golf originated in 15th century Scotland. The 18-hole round was created at the Old Course at St Andrews in 1764. Golf’s first major, and the world’s oldest tournament in existence, is The Open Championship, also known as the British Open, which was first played in 1860 at the Prestwick Golf Club in Ayrshire, Scotland. This is one of the four major championships in men’s professional golf, the other three being played in the United States: The Masters, the U.S. Open, and the PGA Championship.
A great gift for both golf and art lovers.

> Nominated 40 under 40

Aly works from a studio near Belfast which is conducive to her family life with her husband and their three young boys.
She is passionate about placing importance on everyday moments, objects and places in her oil paintings and pastel work. This is one of the many reasons Aly is a well established artist in Belfast, Northern Ireland and the United States of America.
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.
Aly was awarded a first-class honours degree and a distinction in her Masters in Fine Art which she completed following her degree. Specializing in Acrylic, oil and Mixed Media Aly has a love for creating stunning vibrant paintings. Along with a love of monochrome and simple sketches.

I use art in all it’s mediums to express my love for the “every day”. Coffee cups, familiar landmarks, colour associations. All of these, I believe, contribute to what is known as our “everyday”. Not only do I love drawing them, I think they are worth placing importance on.
Have fun navigating the site and don’t hesitate to send me a note if you want to know more.
