I've worked as an artist and professional illustrator for the past fifteen years. My work has appeared regularly in the Irish Times, the Sunday Tribune and the Wall Street Journal, amongst many other publications and I've also won a few awards. I show in galleries in London and Dublin and I've been involved in juried shows in the Louvre, Paris and the Chester Beatty Library, Dublin. You can see my work on my other web sites: www.mcsherry.ie and www.irishdailypaintings.com

I've a strong grounding in good painting techniques which I believe support my vivid imagination. I also believe that for you, acquiring good technique will allow you to represent not only what you see but also represent your imagination; and strike a balance between 'technical ability' and 'feeling' - the part that's you.

I hope that my classes will be an environment where students can have fun, question and gain much more than a new skill. Creativity is our natural tendency and I hope to encourage and inspire it within you.

Drawing Workshop May 28

This one day workshop will concentrate the basics of good drawing practice. Drawing is a vital skill that not only provides a solid basis for your painting but also a way of expressing and evaluating ideas. Besides all that, it’s an enjoyable pastime! Using pencil, charcoal and chalk, you will start the day drawing simple objects, moving on to more complex arrangements and working towards trying self portraits. Finally, there will be a 1.5 hour session drawing from a live model. Attendees will be encouraged and mentored in a convivial atmosphere. Drawing paper, drawing boards, chairs and tables are provided. Materials you will need to bring: Easel (if you prefer to stand) soft pencils (4B-8B) and soft willow charcoal. Tea and coffee provided. Kitchen and toilet facilities available.
