Come and join me at for the August Landscape Painting Weekend. Set in the beautiful rolling hills of the Boyne Valley and home of the Irish Countrywomen’s Association, An Grianán is a glorious 18th century house that has been transformed into a cultural and educational centre.

Get away from it all in a beautiful part of Ireland while practicing your painting skills. It’s a perfect way to spend a weekend -and get some experience painting en plein air with guidance from me. 

Enjoy good food, great company and lots of fresh air and home comforts.
