TINA O'CONNELL ARTIST
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Tina is from Lisdoonvarna, Co. Clare. A place that has inspired much of her work with its raw natural beauty and vibrant creative culture.
Tina has always had a very creative mind, and in 2013 she indulged her love for art by enrolling in the Ennistymon School of Art where she blossomed, completing each level at distinction.
After coming across a local couple who were re-roofing their home from Killaloe slate to thatch, Tina was inspired by the opportunity it provided to re-use this beautiful natural resource with its wonderful texture, which she now uses as her primary canvas.
Currently, Tina is researching and creating a new body of work for 2020, focusing on local Clare heritage and culture, which she hopes to bring to you in 2021. She is also developing her skill as a sculpture, working with Wood and Stone.
