Irene Purcell


What I do:

Abstract acrylic/multi-media paintings seeking to express mystery, connection, worlds within worlds.

What steps I took to get where I am now:

Two big online art courses in 2019, then acquiring a studio and throwing myself into practising and continuing to learn. Coaching others mainly with limiting mindset issues.

What creative opportunities I'm looking for:

Showing existing work, building an audience, finding different creative collaborators for new, experimental work of some kind.

An unexpected thing about me:

I guess that I didn’t do art till I was 63, spent almost a year on in-depth online courses then got a studio (never saw that coming!!) followed by an invitation to become a coach on one of those courses!

My proudest moment:

I don’t really do pride…But I’m happy with myself and everything I’ve done in terms of starting making art at the age of 63 and believing that I am not limited and will continue to grow and develop my work.

My dream creative collaboration:

To work with artists of very different disciplines…

What does Wakefield mean to me?
A home with a beating creative heart.
