Olive O'Callaghan Watkins
"My work explores the use and translation of photographic imagery of people in painting. The results are images which capture moments of fragile beauty, innocence and seduction." Born in
Dundalk in 1973, O'Callaghan graduated with Hons in Fine Art from NCAD and from Winchester School of Art, Barcelona with an MA in European Fine Art in 2001. She lives and works near Bath in the UK, and has exhibited in London, and in the West Country. She has also exhibited in Japan, and Spain. Her exhibitions include Tama 365 Tokyo, Panorama Gallery, Barcelona and also Emerging ART Chelsea London in 2005 and the Exeter Phoenix in 2007. Her solo show Sirens in Joan Clancy Gallery was a great success.
