Sile is a self taught artist that lives with her husband and two children in the South East of Ireland. After a hiatus from practice while her children were young she returned to art four years ago with the aim to build a career as a professional artist.
Sile set up a studio space in a room in her parents’ house and began to build a body of work. The majority of her work is figurative and based around her family and the local community that gravitate towards the ocean. As an avid swimmer and surfer she is trying to capture the emotion or shared experience behind these activities rather than the physical action.
She has exhibited extensively over the past four years and has several exciting prospects in 2021. As an invited artist among some exclusive names she looks forward to painting a cat for the Kilkenny Cat Trail. Sile has a solo show in Barcelona, autumn 2021 at The Flash Gallery and will be included in an online exhibition of Irish Artists at The Sasse Gallery, Los Angeles, America.
Sile is enjoying her trajectory into the art world and continuing her practice as a full time artist.
