Many of these landscapes are painted on site in various locations around the remote peninsula of Inishowen, the most northerly point in Ireland, Co. Donegal.
Contemporary Irish artist, Sinead Smyth, captures an intensity of colour and energy which she sees in the people and landscapes she paints. Smyth is largely self-taught, painting and drawing since childhood, she has spent time studying and working with several professional artists. In 2010 she won an award for her portrait in oil at the 'Open Your Mind Exhibition', NUS-USI, Northern Ireland.
Smyth has been organising, enabling and facilitating arts related
projects for 18 years and has worked on several collaborative arts
projects on both sides of the border, including the City of
Culture/Thames Festival 'Rivers of the World' Project. She has
exhibited in Ireland, Northern Ireland and Europe.
