Brigid Birney - Artist

Originally from Donegal, Brigid studied Graphic Design at the Letterkenny Institute of Technology from 1987 to 1991. Her love of Art took over from Graphic Design and in recent years she has combined a role of mother with creating works of art primarily in acrylic and oils. Brigid’s approach to painting, which is first observation based, followed in many cases by painting from memory and this allows her the freedom in the application of paints while creating a vibrant energy within the painting. The recent figurative works are inspired by her love of people watching, their different poses and expressions.

Brigid likes to mix realism with the abstract. In recent years she has exhibited throughout Ireland and at the Barbara Stanley Gallery, London.
