Sinéad Smyth – artist

Sinéad Smyth is an Irish artist with a passion for people and the landscapes of Inishowen, County Donegal. She paints in oils and facilitates arts projects and workshops which lead to creative developmental change in personal and community perspectives.

Her painting comes from a love of observation, which is followed in many cases by painting from life, memory or photographic record. She creates vibrant, energetic atmospheres and emotions in her work.

Sinéad 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. She has worked on many collaborative projects in Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Her work is held in the collection of Belfast City Council, Derry City Council and in private collections in Ireland, England and France.

These semi-abstract landscapes are executed in heavy, buttery oil paint which she applies by brush, knife and by hand. This technique is combined with a confident use of intense colour. These lush atmospheric paintings have wide appeal and are highly collectable.
