Kay has enjoyed painting for many years.
When she discovered pastel painting she found her forte and made many friends in the Pastel Society of Ireland of which she is an award-winning member.
Since retiring Kay has received lots of help and encouragement, through Rosie’s classes and summer painting holidays, to try many different approaches to drawing and painting.
She is currently working, in various media, on a series of paintings inspired by the poetry of W.B. Yeats for a solo exhibition in the Crescent Arts Centre, Belfast in September 2015.
Shirley has loved painting all her life but started painting seriously about twenty years ago. She loves to experiment in all media – acrylic, inks, oil, charcoal and collage in fact she likens herself to a butterfly flitting from one thing to another – well life’s too short to get bored or boring and the main thing is she enjoys what she does immensely!
She is a member of the Artists Society of Ulster, Ulster Watercolour Society and the Ulster Women Artists
