Lavender Fields – The Quiet Series *SOLD*


Acrylic on 60x60cm square canvas. From my Quiet series where I focused on layering the paint. I allowed odd marks to appear during the drying process and let the bristles of the brush tell their own story.
Inspired by abstract artists everywhere I allowed myself to delve into the simplicity of this series. The wonderful thing about quietening work is that it begins to tell its own story.
Some of the paintings look like they have marks but it is the way each layer of paint dried. 10-15 layers of paint on each colour block.
Each piece will hold space in your home and draw the viewer in to look at the mark making in the painting.

All original artwork is shipped free of charge.

Personalised gift notes can be added at checkout.

Quiet and still

Little men over rippled waters
In kimono pants, hunter green
They leap from beam to beam

Far away bridges in the bay
All alone I stand to the view
Cirrus clouds whisk through blue

Calm the waters swish
The air sticky from humidity
The liquid laps beneath my feet

The world is quiet, gone the buzz
Just months ago, filled with boats
People wandered, Ketch & Cutters afloat

The peace, the serenity
No inspiration for artist’s pen
All muse departed, diminished commotion

All alone, I stand the view


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.

Here is a place where you can find recipes, information on physical wellbeing, travel and home ideas as well as life ramblings.

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.

This blog is an extension of my creativity.

I convey a realistic (the good, the bad, the funny, the sad) view into the life of a family woman, a homemaker and a business woman on a journey of physical and mental wellness.

Have fun navigating the site and don’t hesitate to send me a note if you want to know more.
