Hello Art Lovers and welcome to my website!
Hello I'm Ciara and I was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland. I discovered my love of art from an early age and never stopped creating even during my time as an occupational therapist and complementary therapist.
Following the birth of my two beautiful children, a natural break in work inspired me to say goodbye to conventional employment and follow my dream of becoming a full-time artist. Self-taught, I found my groove in textile art for a while, then progressed to abstract expressionism which finally felt like home.
Today you will find me painting in my garden studio with paint-splattered hair and a mug of hot tea. I am humbled to say my art has found homes all around the globe.
I've had some lovely comments about my art. This description I feel sums up my artwork perfectly! ...
'Ciara applies paint in a variety of ever-changing brush strokes, from soft and blended to loose and expressionistic. Her soft swathes of colours blur and blend into one another, skimming a lightly textured surface, creating an image that transcends reality, and allows the viewer to draw their own conclusions about the subject matter.
A horizon line suggesting earth or land often bursts through a mist provoking mystical undertones.
Ciara's work is full of strong contrasts from darker colours, to subtle lighter hues.
This, together with a variety of mark-making, results in a contrast of moods which vary from calm and dreamy, to energetic and explosive.
Light plays an important role, often providing a focal point for the composition and creating a celestial hypnotic feel.
Rich, vibrant swathes of colour appear to nudge each other, moving slowly across the canvas like clouds; the resulting mood is soothing and joyful.
