Rambles in Erris
Catherine Keane, Judith Dixon and Diana Taylor are three local artists who love to create their artwork portraying the landscape in which they all live. Catherine paints in watercolour and acrylics, she also creates some beautiful artwork using pyrography. Judith paints local landscapes and flowers in acrylics and Diana works in oils, watercolours and creates needlefelted 'paintings' using wool as her medium. We hope you will enjoy our depictions of the many aspects of the landscapes of Erris.
