Marie McKay, Dublin and Cavan, Irish Artist

I have recently discovered coloured pencils, which I love. I also love to draw portraits particularly those in the colours of the old masters. I am originally from Dublin but live in Cavan now. I spend most of my spare time drawing in order to become as skilled as I possible can with this medium and the portrait, figure.

I am now venturing into oil painting. I am going to try to perfect my use of this medium, sorry I am determined to perfect this medium. I am mostly interested in doing portraits, figurative, and still life. I love peoples faces and expressions, so that is what I look to capture.
