Terenure College, Dublin 6
Dublin City Council
Terenure has huge pride and passion for its sporting history that has existed for generations. It is strategically placed at the entrance to the school which is also a gateway to the local rugby club. In my piece ' Strive ' I hope to convey this sense of pride with a powerful image painted in a realist form. The role of the Carmelite community is represented by the wearing of The Scapular. The word ' strive ' I believe speaks for itself.
I grew up and live in Terenure. I am a graduate of the National College of Art and Design and work as an artist mainly on a freelance commercial basis, as I am still raising my family. I am also currently working on pieces with a view to exhibiting in the future, which will be a dream come true!
