About Therese O'Keeffe

Seduced by colour my paintings are inspired by the flowers and countryside around me. My pallet is vibrant and colourful with lots of texture. I almost always work in oils in an abstract impressionist style. I am an Irish artist, from the southwest of Ireland, a place called killarney. I started painting In 2000 taking instruction from other Irish artists who's work I admired. I quickly developed my own style which is impressionist and also exploring into abstract style. I paint to bring beauty into people's homes and families. I have always lived in the countryside and flowers and hedgerows are an integral part of that. Painting abstract flowers allows me to interpret natural beauty creatively and it's a good subject that gives me freedom to take artistic licence to explore abstract and impressionist styles in an intuitive way. Also I love abstract impressionist flower paintings in a kitchen because it brings the outside in. I paint mainly with oils using both pallet knife and mostly brush hope you enjoy looking through my work page.
