Local artist  launches new website featuring work

Local portrait artist 'Marty' has just launched her new website.

Marty grew up in Clane, Co Kildare and has always been surrounded by Art.

Her grandfather, father, mother, sister and uncle are all artists so her move into visual art was no surprise.

Her life long interest in faces and the figure has been the driving force behind her latest work. Using people she paints directly onto her models with acrylic paints.

With her camera the 3D models appear 2D and she has found a way of capturing this ethereal transformation as the faces appear out of the darkness with powerful intensity.

She hosted her own Art Exhibition entitled 'Living Art' in Christ Cathedral back in 2014 and since then she has had the pleasure of painting some very interesting people and also hosting more exhibitions.

Some notable faces she has painted include local actor/musician Kieran O'Reilly who starred in Love/Hate and Vikings TV series, MMA Fighter Cathal Pendred and Westlife singer Markus Feehily who used his image to promote his solo tour. 

The first collection available on her website features 6 images of Irish TV and radio presenter Eoghan McDermott and each collection is limited.
