Born in Dublin, in 1964 Gillian is an artist and graphic designer and a graduate of the National College of Art and Design, Dublin. Her early work, which focuses mainly on still life uncovers the profound beauty in simple everyday objects and is inspired by sculptural form, the play of light and the subtle nuances of colour. Her current works which is a mixture of semi figurative and abstract compositions is strongly influenced by the Irish landscape. Through an ethereal combination of colour and texture it encompasses the fickleness of the Irish weather and the mercurial mood of the sea. A combination of pallet knife and brush work result in a loose bold style with a richness of texture. She has exhibited in Belgium where she lived for seven years, and in Ireland.
