Alison Barry, Limerick, Irish Artist

I am a mainly self-taught artist from Co. Limerick. Having a background in Interior Design has influenced my love of capturing mood and creating atmosphere in a painting. I paint and draw in most mediums but I am currently using Soft Pastels, charcoal and oils. I love to experiment with all media.

My work is emotive depending on mood. I would describe my style as expressionist. Most of my inspiration comes from the beautiful landscape and nature of Ireland. I’m very much influenced by the ever changing Irish weather. I'm also very much inspired by music, lyrics and poetry.

Sometimes I drift between what’s real and my imaginary world, so much of my work is illustrative and has a fantasy element to it. The Hare is a prominent figure in my work and appears periodically! I love to play with colour and bringing my imagination to the page.

I am an active member of ArtLimerick and take part in group exhibitions and markets throughout the year.
