  • Strathmore Artist Papers Award pt1

    Our first Strathmore Artist Papers Award in the Leisure Papers category at the Patching Art Competition 2016 went to Diana Boanas for her watercolour "Alex Was Five".

    Diana, who lives in Hull, describes herself as "..a virtually self taught artist returning to art following a long absence due to a full time teaching career." Her location in The East Riding of Yorkshire allows access to the beautiful countryside of the Yorkshire Wolds, as well as the North sea coastline which is a popular artist subject. Diana enjoys experimenting with any medium but is leaning towards watercolour as her favourite being fascinated by its translucency and unpredictable movement.

    Diana wins £200 worth of Strathmore Artist papers of her choice. Congratulations Diana!

  • Strathmore Artist Papers Award pt2

    Our second Strathmore Artist Papers award goes to Darragh Treacy from Dublin. Darragh won the prize of £200 worth of Strathmore Artist Papers in the Patchings Art Competition 2016 Leisure Painter category for his oil painting of "Drury Street, Dublin".

    Darragh Treacy was born in 1973 and raised just outside Avoca, Co. Wicklow. Darragh is predominately self taught and favours the use of oils with an impressionist style.  It was Darragh’s father, the artist Liam Treacy, that first introduced Darragh to painting “en plein air”, something which Darragh still enjoys today.

    Darragh’s subject matter is varied and includes still-life, landscapes and street scenes. Darragh has exhibited at the Wexford Opera Festival since 2011. He is a member of the Dublin Painting and Sketching Club, exhibiting at its annual exhibition in Dun Laoghaire and W.B Yeats anniversary exhibition in City Assembly House Dublin.  While working all year round on private commissions, his work can also be found in leading Dublin galleries and in private collections at home and abroad. Darragh also works as a set designer and his work has brought him much critical acclaim and numerous design awards form the Institute of Designers of Ireland.
