Beautifully evocative paintings of children at play on sandy Irish beaches of the West Coast.
Born in London, Vivienne St Clair worked as an illustrator before moving to Ireland in 1986. Painting professionally since 1993, Vivienne has held several solo shows and shown in many group exhibitions. She has had work accepted by both the Royal Hibernian Academy and the Royal Ulster Academy for their annual exhibitions and has shown in galleries in the UK, US, France and here in Ireland. She sees her work as a journey, an exploration of the language of painting. For her it is about the emotion in the paint, the marks and textures, the subject is only the starting point for her painting. She currently lives and works in Kilmoyley, Co. Kerry, close to the coast, where a new journey has begun.
Finally, finally our hands have thawed and we have put together the February newsletter. Plenty of fresh art from existing and new artists to Draíocht. We find it very difficult to keep the ‘scent of Adare Manor’ namely, La Bougie in stock, particularly the Mission Fig scent. Bronze sculptures and ceramic shelves have been replenished introducing a few new artists.
