Lilian specialises in painting birds & wildlife subjects mainly to commission. She has illustrated calendars & greeting cards for a number of companies. This current exhibition depicts native birds in their natural environment.
As a keen photographer & bird watcher she has an intimate knowledge of birds and their habitat. Combining this interest with painting, is a challenge, as the subject does not always oblige with a pose. The excitement happens when the subject comes alive on the canvas and the fun is capturing a fleeting image of a beautiful bird in close up.
Lilian graduated from DLCAD in the mid 1990's after which she spent some time in experimenting with textile art in NCAD for which she received a number of awards.
Lilian lectures to art groups and has taught several adult art programmes.
