Santa Monica Pier – print available in A1 and A5 – ALL Sizes SOLD OUT



Santa Monica Pier

Santa Monica Pier is inspired by my trip to Los Angeles last year, the original painting is a large piece that envelopes the peach palette that greeted me and my two oldest boys as we walked Venice beach with jet lag upon our arrival to the States.

If you have visited LA you will know of the energy and balmy colours that the sky takes on in the evening and early morning. Santa Monica pier is such a highlight and it adds perspective to the liveliness of this piece.

Made using a thick palette knife and fine brushwork, it is the perfect mixture of rough and smooth and we have worked hard to show the mark-making in your luxurious limited edition print.

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 to 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.

Pick from two sizes and allow the pinks and pastel blues to come to life on your wall as you remember your own time at Santa Monica pier.

The large print is A1 (59.4 x 84.1 cm) in size which shows a clean white border where your limited edition number will feature along with my (the artist’s) signature. It also frames Santa Monica perfectly for you. (now sold out).

The smaller print is A5 (14.8 × 21.0cm) again with an A6 insert of the original artwork to allow for the limited edition number and my signature below. (now sold out).


Printed by Media Design Belfast on 180gsm matte coated A4 paper.

All prints are packaged carefully and shipped via Royal Mail recorded delivery to ensure they are received promptly and damage free.

About Aly

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.

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 home maker and a business woman on a journey of physical and mental wellness.
