Whitepark bay A1

Whitepark bay A1  is 1.5 x 1 metres in size and was made using palette knife and acrylics. The paint is thick and there is movement and joy with each stroke of the palette knife.
As a child I ventured to white park bay with friends on camping trips and stayed in the youth hostel. The wind swept you off your feet as your stepped out of the car in summer or winter. But the view held your gaze and reminded you of slower times and fresh embraces with nature.
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.

Part of the ‘Dreaming of Summer’ exhibition. Each one was made with expression and love.

Pink skies and rugged headlands can be noted as I varied between palette knife work and paintbrush to bring this collection of Northern Irish seascapes to life. My yearning for Summer is evident with each piece and the movement it portrays.

Enjoy the figures and the thick paint marks as you view each painting and let yourself be transported to the location with memories and associations flooding in.

This piece can be a momentum with the smaller print or a larger statement piece in your home.

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.

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