Marie O’Gara is a mixed media artist who after leaving school, went on to study fine art at the Crawford College of Art and Design Cork. She left to pursue a career in nursing which she continued until her family were grown up. She subsequently returned to Art, and over the last number of years has studied abstract art under several international artists.
Her roots and ancestry are here in Sligo and she is very influenced by this magical mythical place, with its deep roots in history, its evocative beautiful landscape and its rich culture. She loves living in a coastal area and strives to create paintings that contain a piece of this world which she has been so rooted in for so many years. A place that inspires her. A place she feels an intimate and deep connection to.
This is Marie’s third exhibition this summer. She has only recently returned from a 2 week exhibition in Paris which was a fantastic experience . She is really happy to have been invited back to the SG Art Shop to exhibit her paintings.
Most of Marie’s work is mixed media with acrylic on board using the System 3 and Winsor & Newton ranges
