We are in full flow carrying out renovations.

Sinéad Smyth - your artist
Hi! I'm a local artist with more than 20 years experience as an art tutor. I love working with people to help bring out their inner, sometimes hidden, creativity.
I've worked with The Turner Prize, The Thames Festival, The British Council and City of Culture over the years, along with countless children and adults.
My paintings and installations have been shown nationally and internationally. My work is held in public and private collections globally.
I’ve been a creative all my life, taking up oil painting more seriously under artist mentors in my 30s. I find inspiration in everyday observations of people and landscapes.
My style of work is generally abstract impressionism although I have been known to dip into realism on occasion! I aim to capture the essence of my chosen subject, creating the illusion of detail through energetic mark making and brushwork.
