THE TEA ROOM GALLERY SPACE
Bettina Norton (083 4324550, FB bettinanortonfineart, Etsy). Bettina qualified from Trinity College with an honours degree in Fine Art. She mainly paints landscapes and seascapes in oil. Working both outdoors on location or in her studio. More recently her work has moved towards painting wavescapes. I love the sounds of moving water and wave motion. It’s soothing and restful, almost hypnotic. Bettina is showcasing a variety of new works in the Tea Room and exhibits in the Tudor Artisan Hub year round.
THE KILN GALLERY SPACE
Aislinn Duggan and Róisín Duggan (085 1813814). FB Aislinn and Róisín Duggan Art. Twins sisters Aislinn and Róisin both study genetics in Dublin and love to paint when at home in the countryside.

Aislinn paints mainly colourful, imaginative landscapes, animals and figurative scenes in acrylic on canvas. Aislinn and Róisín exhibit in the Tudor Artisan Hub gallery year round.
Nicola Chestnutt (087 7918629, http://www.nicolachestnutt.ie). I’m a Waterford artist, working intuitively and from the heart. I mostly paint with watercolours but more recently have started creating pen illustrations. My work often has a magical or fairytale feel to it and links to nature. I write a poem or uplifting message for each of my artworks which adds a little more meaning to the image. The poetry enhances the artwork, drawing out more meaning and providing further inspiration. For Nicola, the aim of her painting and poetry is always to bring you into your own inner space, where you can remember the beauty of who you are and the magic of the world around you.
Yvonne Byrne (083 8980308). I paint in oil on large canvas in bold bright colours following the brush in celtic swirls in which dancing beings flora and fauna are found.
Micheal O’ Fearghail (087 6695635). Mostly self-taught landscape painter. I love the sea and I am happiest painting coastal scenes in watercolour.
