Gill’s works of art go on show
A GREYSTONES-BASED artist is to have her work displayed at Kicroney Furniture.
Gill Mac recently graduated from BIFE and has been given the chance to display her paintings on an ongoing basis at the facility.
Kilcroney Furniture is located at exit seven on the N11.
Gill has a selection of local Wicklow landscapes in ink and wash, as well as more abstract works of beach pebbles in print. The theme running through her work ‘Landscapes of Home’ takes her to the beautiful surroundings of her Greystones home, and memories of the Western Cape of South Africa where she was born.
Gill studied fine art at the University of Cape Town.
In 1998 she moved to London due to her distaste at the Apartheid regime.
‘I travelled extensively around Europe until making Ireland my home in the 1990s,’ said Gill.
She worked in the film industry for many years as a buyer and set decorator on movies and TV commercials.
During this time she set up an import company and retail outlet selling art, crafts, jewellery and gifts from Africa, Asia, Europe and China.
She then worked as an interior designer, specialising in property staging, and had a few years as a supply chain and logistics manager in the furniture business.
She is now dedicated to art. ‘My work allows me to express my love of nature and the changing palette of the seasons,’ said Gill.
