Eilis Kavanagh is a landscape artist based in Hawkfield, close to Newbridge in Co. Kildare. Her work is inspired not only by the beauty of the local countryside and bog land but also by her many visits to the West of Ireland & Camino Trips. Her collection of work is a personal response to the scenes she encounters as she travels through the countryside.
When asked about her work and what motivates her she says, “I paint for my own pleasure and I hope that my art will speak and inspire those who view them”.
In 2012, Eilis, who is originally from Newbridge, embarked on her lifelong passion to paint, something she has always inspired to do but which had to be deferred due to life and work commitments over the years. She has embraced her new craft with passion and enthusiasm; capturing scenes around her which are reflected in her work to date.
Eilis is also the curator and force behind the Newbridge Community “Pop Up” Art Exhibitions which enables the collaboration of local artists of all genres to showcase their work to a wider audience, with great success.
