Very talented artist. You'll need deep pockets to buy her work. Generally welcoming but she can appear a little brusque at times.

This was a big beautiful surprise we found in Dingle. A wonderful gallery full of amazing paintings depicting the ocean. We were really impressed with the paintings and the gallery owner couldn't have been more kind and nice to talk to. Worth a visit, without a doubt!

An amazing artist and and a wonderful gallery. The colours and the feeling of being right in the depths of the ocean is so palpable. The originals are not cheap but the limited edition prints are more affordable. However the originals are stunning and worth it if you like something really really different.

Carol was in the shop when we visited and working on a piece of fascinating art. As an artist, I was entranced by her work. Carol was very gracious and took time to chat. I am still amazed at her wonderful paintings of the sea and sand of Ireland.
