Leslie Ryan Hurley
Hi I’m Leslie, a local artist living and painting in Broadford. I paint large, fun and vibrant paintings that I call, ‘Happy Art”. My work is expressive, semi abstract, and full of movement and bright , bold colours. I like to use a wide variety of media. I love to create soft layers of inks and high flow acrylic paint on canvas, building a rainbow of colours in each background. This sets the stage for my trademark spots, long dancing grasses and abstract wild flowers.
I teach my own ‘Happy Art’ children's art classes and host seasonal art camps and workshops. I encourage the children to experiment with different techniques and media, and focus on finding the joy of the creative process.
I am a member of the “By Design”, artists’ co-op shop in the Castletroy town centre and my work is on display, and for sale in our gallery there. I hope my paintings make people smile and bring an element of fun into their homes! I am happy to take commissions.
