About the print
The original is 30 x 25 inches and was made using the palette knife and acrylic on canvas.
Scroll over the image to activate the zoom tab and see the thick layers of oil paint. We have made it our priority for our prints be as true to life as the real thing. Movement is really important to Aly and she wants the viewer to feel responsive to this in the marks of the palette knife.
The prints for this piece are limited edition and come in a smaller A5 ( A6 postcard 6×4 inches size image set inside a white border)
** now SOLD OUT**
and the larger statement A1 ( A2 image 16.5 x 23.4 inches).
Beach walk is one of those bold thick paintings where the waves can be heard in the distance and you know the figures in the foreground are being blown to pieces!!
Crashing waves of turquoise greens and blues sweeping into the pale peachy sand while meeting the sky on the other side.
Printed by Media Design Belfast on 230gsm matte coated paper.

About the artist
Aly is a Northern Irish based Artist, Writer and Educator. She has several accolades to her name, most recently:
> Nominated 40 under 40
> Listed as top 100 / Small Business Saturday
> Finalist in the East Side Awards
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.
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.

I use art in all it’s mediums to express my love for the “everyday”. 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.
