About the Artist –

Mary Roberts

AboutSo a little bit about the artist – me!

I grew up in the now, infamous Burren, my playground the limestone rock formations and my go to place….the sea, now better known as The Wild Atlantic Way!

That question, “were you always an arty child?” is often asked, and the answer is yes! From constructing dolls houses from cardboard boxes to drawing anything that stood/sat still long enough. But I didn’t get to fulfil my dream of art school until many years later. In between I was busy with life, work, marriage and raising three fantastic kids.

Then in 2008 I began a BA in Art & Design at CCAM. Here I was exposed to new artists, their many styles and of course, lifelong friendships with like minded people. In 2014 I graduated and have grown my Art for Fun business facilitating weekly Adult Art Classes and Kids Summer Art Camps, while still working at my own art practise.

I feel privileged to work at something I love and never take it for granted. I am so thankful to all those who turn up for class each week, to those who have commissioned me to paint that special piece and those who have bought a piece of art work from me.

Long may it continue…
