Tina specialises in oil painted landscapes and has over 20 years experience as an artist, covering various disciplines.
She draws inspiration from the beautiful Killarney National Park and the Mountains and Lakes of Kerry and West Cork near her home in the Clydagh Valley just outside Killarney, Co Kerry in Ireland.
Tina uses an 'impasto' technique in her paintings, where paint is layered and textured to build up a tactile three dimensional surface. She uses the palette knife to create spontaneous effects bringing movement and life to her work. Strong colours and contrast generate the energy and vigour that is in the landscapes of South West Ireland.
Tina Reed also runs oil painting courses for beginners & intermediate painters, studio based, and Outdoors in the summer at various locations, including Ross Castle in Killarney. For further information, see www.killarneyartholidays.com
