About Me

Hi there, my name is Leonora Reilly - I live in Co Louth in Ireland.

I reignited my love of art and painting in recent years as my children have become older.  I attended courses with local professional artists developing my own style and use of colour. I have tended to paint landscapes and images using warm earthy colours creating shadowy scenes full of texture and depth - hoping you can almost feel the sun on your face or see yourself standing in that painting smelling the outdoors or the sea air. 

Having created a studio in my home, this has allowed me to paint whenever I can. My artwork is displayed for sale in a local coffee shop.

Being a long-time fan of the Sky Arts Landscape & Portrait Artist of the Year shows, I had the chance of a lifetime to enter as 1 of the 50 Wild Cards in 2019 in Plymouth - the amazing experience couldn't be dampened by a wet stormy morning.  In Summer 2020, I took part in the week long Dublin Plein Air Festival, painting out in local parks.

In August 2021, I organised a one day plein air art event in Beaulieu Gardens, Drogheda where over 40 artists travelled to participate from Dundalk, Roscommon and as far away as West Cork. Looking forward to planning the 2022 event.
