Artist Deborah O'Keeffe, USA and Kerry

I grew up in New York and was taught to draw by my father Patrick O'Connell, an artist at the Museum of Natural History in New York City. In the 1990's I moved to Peekskill with the first wave of artists and helped to reinvent the city as an artist' enclave. I joined the Peekskill Artists Association and its board of directors and is still thought of today as a pioneer in Peekskill's Arts Community. During my Peekskill days, I was known then as Deborah Hyatt, primarily worked in pen and ink. my detailed drawings of the historic buildings of Peekskill still dot the local walls of homes and businesses today. One of my proudest moments was when I was asked to create an original drawing of Pataki's Farm Stand which was presented to George Pataki when he was elected Governor of the State of New York.

In 1995 I Moved to Ireland were I met my husband Patrick. My art career was put on hold while the couple renovated a barn on Patrick's family's farm. During that time, I worked as a weaver at Mucross House in Killarney. Once the house was built, I left my job as a weaver, started an art school in her home for children and resumed her art career. 'I discovered soft pastels and soon started painting the beautiful landscapes of Kerry. The sky and the landscapes are always changing and were a great inspiration for an artist used to working only in black and white pen and ink. After years painting in pastel, I recently switched to oils. The oils give me more flexibility and allow me to better capture the beauty and subtle colors of Ireland.While many think of Ireland as rainy, dull and cloudy, it's quite the opposite. You'll never see so many variations of green than in Ireland,'.

In December 2010 I opened the Back Lane Gallery on New Market Lane in Killarney. The gallery is a place where local artists from around County Kerry can exhibit and sell their art at affordable prices. In addition to having my own gallery, The Back Lane Gallery in Killarney I am currently exhibiting at the Frida Gallery in Youghal County Cork and the Quiet Man in Peekskill NY, You will always find me at the Back Lane Gallery My artwork can be viewed and purchased online at...
