Patricia Keely-Murphy


Patricia is a full time professional artist who lives in Kilkenny, Ireland.

Originally from Leixlip, Co. Kildare, she is a third generation artist, following in the footsteps of her great aunt, Brenda Heath RHA and her father, Liam Keely.

Rather than being drawn to a particular theme, Patricia’s inspiration comes from the constant flux of light and its effect on colour, leading to an exciting mix of works and styles.

 Working mainly in acrylic, she makes the paint flow and blend, creating a visually emotive piece of art that never fails to appeal. Her floral collection has a sense of freedom, with movement and colour always the criteria. The Fungalbods add a good sprinkle of humour to balance the serious business of life and her mythical collection reminds us of the magic in life, the romance that is still in all of us.

 Patricia has participated in many group exhibitions in Dublin and Kildare with great success and has also had solo exhibitions in the Kilkenny Arts Festival since 2013. Her work graces the walls of many fine homes across the world, including Canada, the USA and Europe.

Patricia has created a set of digital stickers based on the Fungalbods for use on social media. These can be found on LINE
