About the Artists 

My name is Alison Barry and I am an artist working from my home in Co Limerick, Ireland. Growing up and living in the countryside has influenced the way I perceive the world around me.
Ireland, with all its beauty and its ruggedness is a constant inspiration. I'm fascinated by the sky, the seasons, the transitions from each day to night and I try and show the emotion I feel through my

The forgotten roads, the old rundown cottages and the wildlife of Ireland are what attract me most of all.

There is a story in the everyday things that surround us and I paint those that I find most interesting. Every now and again I drift between what is real and my imaginary world which brings an illustrative
quality and a fairytale element to my paintings.

I have held a number of solo exhibitions and have also been involved in many group shows nationally. My work can be found in galleries throughout Ireland.  I am a member of the Pastel Society of Ireland and Visual Artists Ireland.
One of my paintings is currently on exhibit at the Ulster Museum as part of the Royal Ulster Academy of Arts 141st Annual Exhibition.

‘A Place Called Home ‘ is a collection of my most recent work, continuing my exploration of rural Ireland through the seasons.
