Artist Statement -

Living surrounded by her animals in Wicklow, Ireland,this professional artist has a deserved reputation as Irelands foremost contemporary canine and equestrian artist.
An award winning full time professional artist, Jacinta graduated with a PhD from University College, Cork and now has both a national and international reputation for her paintings of rural landscapes, country life, period interiors and equine and dog studies. She lives in and works from an 18th century country rectory in the heart of Wicklow. Her subject matter depicts the genteel splendour, pursuits and often eccentricities of Irelands surviving country houses and demesnes.
She has been selected in recent years to exhibit at the prestigious International Exhibition of Equestrian Art at both Chisties and the Mall Galleries, London. This exhibition is staged annually to showcase the work of the best of International Equine artists.

The empathy she clearly has for her subjects, allied with her technical ability, knowledge of anatomy and acute observation can be seen in her evocative paintings of animals and country artifacts - all drawn from the farmyard, gardens and fields surrounding her home.
Her landscapes portray an other-worldly atmosphere of moments caught in time and depict anachronistic experiences and a way of living fast disappearing in this technological age but still experienced by this artist in her rural retreat in Wicklow.

She was an invited artist by Hugue Pisarro at the renowned Salon de la Rochelle, France where she was the recipient of a gold medal d'Honeur. Following several sell out shows in Ireland recently. her reputation was secured and her paintings have received critical acclaim.

She is represented in Ireland by Gormley's Fine Art , Dublin,The Lee Gallery , Cork, The Forge Gallery , Collon and more.She is a member of the En Plein-Air painters Ireland and has been the recipient of their Peoples Choice Category at their Wexford exhibitions.

Her works can be found in many corporate and private collections both in Ireland, America, Australia and latterly China and abroad, including the Office of Public Works, De Beers S.A. and ETP International.
