Audrey Kyle is a contemporary watercolorist who paints rural landscapes and country scenes in a free, fluid style.
Although Audrey has always loved art, she began learning watercolour techniques from Paul Holmes, a local Irish landscape artist, in 2009. This has now developed into an occupation, creating her own unique style. In November 2018 she converted an old stone barn into her studio/gallery and now invites visitors by appointment. Living on a farm atop the Gobbins cliffs, Audrey draws much of her inspiration from the beauty of nature and the changing seasons! This inspiration lends a magical quality to her work. Her images have been described as making people happy and her work has a simple and delightful quality.
Step into an ancient world, into a barn with bright, whitewashed walls that are lined with contemporary scenes of rural landscapes and country life. Audrey's relaxed style reflects her passion for island life and the beauty of the environment in this unique part of the Antrim coast. Visit the studio to learn about the artist's personal journey and how she mastered her watercolor technique and created Audrey Kyle Art.
Indulge yourself in an art class with Audrey and you will find that painting is an excellent form of therapy, encouraging mindfulness and stress relief. But if that’s not enough there are books, leaflets, and interpretation in the workshop where visitors will discover how personality, mood, one’s interests and visual landscape impact one’s style of watercolour painting and how mental and social wellbeing benefits from this captivating hobby.
