EXPERIMENTAL ART

I started swimming in the sea again recently, thanks to a friend of mine, who braves the cold all year round. It is a culture that is particularly evident among women in their 40s and 50s. Why is this? I think we reach the age of peri menopause and our bodies demand to be cooled down and balanced. I think we come into our own as females around this age, well this is true for me at least, whether or not we have partners and children in tow. I think there is a certain enlightenment that takes place within us and we realise that life is for living. Grab all the opportunities.

This is an extract of a new body of work I am currently exploring. I wanted to capture the feeling of coming out of the cold water. I am a swimmer. I am free. I have arms wide open and I embrace life with all my heart. Mixed media on paper. It was as freeing an experience as cold water swimming.

COMMISSION A PIECE OF ART FOR YOUR HOME

I love to take on commissions of all sorts including abstracts, animals and figurative. The process is a simple one. Firstly we will disucss any thoughts you might have for the piece. Often a commission painting idea will start with one thing and evolve as I tease out ideas and get my imagination fired up. Once the deposit is placed, I will commence with initial sketch ideas, which I will communicate with you. Then I go away and start the painting once we have decided on the details. Depending on the size and subject matter a lead time of 6 to 8 weeks is generally realistic.

I'm happy to meet you and take on new projects so contact me to dive in to this exciting journey. Thanks, KiKi, June 2021.

Painting workshops in GOMA Waterford & The Coastguard Cultural Centre

Being able to share the joy of painting and self expression is so satisfying. The relaxed and mindful experience I like to deliver really shows in the results and the end of a session. Currently not operating BUT I cannot wait to launch my whole new set of day long workshops for adults of all abilities and ages once it is safe to do so. Lots to look forward to people! Take care in the meantime x

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

I made sure to hang my painting where I would see it most often, for it to work its magic. I come down every morning and it's the first thing I see. It instantly brings me joy.

Louisa, Waterford

Just found kikiroosliart on Insta. She painted this pic for me of my fab boxer, Dinky, who we sadly lost during Lockdown. It always makes me smile.

Dr. Pixie Mc Kenna, London

Love it so much, it's hanging pride of place in our sitting room.

Barbara, Dublin

Thank you so much. Our home will be forever brighter because of you.
