This is the website of the well-known West Cork artist Louise McKeon. Here you can view a catalogue of Louise's paintings. The on-line gallery is divided into six sections covering Irish Landscapes, Seascapes, Portraits, Buildings, Boats and Flora. Louise is based in the famous fishing town of Kinsale and is one of its best known painters.
"At her best McKeon translates a Japanese delicacy of detail into the Irish vernacular. She notices the small things in a landscape the perfect reflection of a rusty gatepost in a muddy puddle or the contrasting texture of a rotting piece of wood perched on an old stone wall. But she can also handle bigger things, notably maritime skies which are usually grey and stormy, caught at that moment when the sun shines on the foreground as a storm approaches from behind. Her work is remarkable for its spontaneity and its unsentimental celebration of the visual pleasures of this part of the world." - [Kinsale, Co Cork, Ireland]
