About Rita Linney
Based in County Clare, Ireland. member for 4 Weeks
I am a shy person, not used to flaunting my work around so I am doing my best.
I suppose I have always been fascinated by the way light and shadow influence a subject and here on the west coast of ireland there are so many opportunities to capture just that.
I studied art in Doncaster and Canterbury and have worked alongside some very distinguished artists from whom I have learned a great deal, particularly working with oil paint.
Early work was mainly in Whitby and the east coast, some paintings were in France including “the beast” which appears on my website on the further works page.
I am probably producing more work than ever since I moved to clare for that very purpose, so far the weather has been kind. We will see what the winter offers with stormy seas and high tides.
