About your host, Deborah
My mother is an artist, so I grew up in a house surrounded by art and music. It's always been a positive part of my life, and I want to share it with you. I am a professional artist and published author. When I graduated from NCAD—National College of Art and Design—I headed straight to New York, where I worked as a ghost painter. I came home to Ireland after several years away and during the reces…
What we’ll do
Whether it’s your first time painting or you are an art enthusiast, all abilities are welcome for this experience. I will talk you through each brushstroke, splatter, and blend to make sure your masterpiece—which you will leave with at the end—can be hung proudly at home. The workshop will include all art supplies, including paint, aprons, brushes, and canvas, a themed playlist, and artist facilit…
What I’ll provide
Tea and coffee 󲀃
I'll provide coffee, tea, and baked goods after a brief demo on how to use the oils.

Banana bread 󴀁
Every creative spirit needs a sweet treat. I like to bake so we will pause for tea, cake, coffee, seeds, and fruit.
Who can come
Guests ages 12 and up can attend.
Oils can be messy, so please wear old clothes or turn your clothes inside out. Dress warmly if we are painting outdoors. The summers here can be like your winters, so be prepared.
Where we’ll be
We will be in my studio, which is on the grounds of Marlay Park with 300 acres of woodlands, ponds, and walks. My studio is in the craft courtyard with other artist studios and a coffee shop, which were once the old stables of the Marlay House built in 1764. If the weather is good, we will get out to the walled garden and paint. There is also a yard with chickens and peacocks, beautiful rivers, and Monet-type scenes—plenty of things to paint.
