My studio – the sacred ground and where it all happens!


ArtArtist Statement - Donna McGeeist Statement

My paintings are inspired by the love of the Irish landscape. I am drawn to capture the play between  light and shadow,  rugged coastlines, earthy boglands and misty  mountain-tops.  I am also fascinated by the amazing colour and cloud formations of the Irish sunset.  Hence, it could be said, that I go around with my head in the clouds – figuratively speaking of course! Capturing  the essence of this beauty is my goal.


My preferred medium is oils.  I enjoy manipulating its properties to create layers of rich texture and vibrancy.  I am self-taught so my process is more intuitive rather than analytical.


Surrounded by magnificent scenery, I am blessed to live on the east coast of Ireland at the foothills of the Dublin mountains.  Hillwalking and discovering  interesting vistas to capture by camera or to sketch and work up later in my studio is exciting for me.    Weather permitting, I  paint outdoors (en plein air).  This creates a sense of immediacy to capture the changing light and is both challenging and rewarding.  I am a regular visitor to Europe’s largest open air painting festival in Wexford  Art in the Open.

Exploring the world through travel gives rise to experience new panoramas and cultures.   It has an inspirational impact on my work and can create a whole new perspective.  This is  something  I enjoy going in whatever destination the painting journey dictates.

I have had two very successful Dublin solo shows and exhibit in many group exhibitions to include Art Source, Ideal Homes and The House Event.

You can catch me most Sundays at the open art exhibition in beautiful Georgian Merrion Square  and at The People’s Art in St. Stephens Green, Dublin at regular intervals throughout the year.

I aim to keep my artwork at affordable prices so that you can fill an empty wall with one of my pieces. That empty space can become a vibrant statement piece or a restful and quiet corner.
 Contact me  if you wish to enquire about any of the paintings on this site.



If you have a special image that you would like captured in a unique painting, I would be pleased to discuss this further with you.  A good photo is always helpful.


Limited editions Giclée prints are available which are individually numbered and signed.  Please contact me to discuss.
