About the artist
Aly is a Northern Irish based Artist, Writer and Educator. One of Northern Ireland’s top artists, widely known for her Belfast prints and impressionist techniques. 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. 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 “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.

Thank you for browsing my work.
And time ticks past.
Made silent by the sight.
As soldiers meticulously move
Executing each terrible, torturous task.
Still life lingers in His fragile, broken form.
As blow by blow,
Nails bite deep through flesh to find wood.
As He is lifted high,
Silhouetted ‘gainst the sky which He has made.
As His cry echoes deep in my hardened, calloused heart.
As He screams ‘it is complete,
Finished, final, said and done.’
As the sky turns inky black
And the sun and moon and stars forget to shine.
As worlds collide,
And time ticks by;
What once bound, no longer seems to hold.
For part of me is gone,
Kept forever on Calvary’s painful peak.
At the foot of the cross, to begin my journey home.
