About Cairn Hill Art:
Margart McKenna, "originally from Dublin but have been living in Virginia, Cavan for the past 22 years where I've reared my four children. Previous to that I spent four years in NCAD in the early 80s and then went in to animation in Sullivan Bluth studios and other companies in the mid 90s. I have worked in book illustration for such companies as Folen's.
After moving here I become involved locally, exhibiting in Cavan County Museum in the early 2000s and setting up Castle Arts which is a group of local artists from the Oldcastle area. In mid 2000s I began teaching in the community eg. Active Virginians, Oldcastle retirement group and Moynalty Art Group. I also taught at my home and two years ago built a cabin, learning to slate in the process! This is now my studio cabin and I have been, till recently, holding classes several times a week. I am also working as a tutor with CMETB , working in the Cavan/Monaghan area. I have also done quite amount of mural work, both for private and commercial customers, including being part of an award winning garden designed by Barry Kavanagh in Bloom 2019.
As regards my own work, I paint in various mediums and subjects range from landscapes to portraits and anything inbetween. Unfortunately my teaching has been cut short due to this crises so I thought it would be nice to reach out to people, especially parents with bored children, but also to those adults missing their weekly classes. This is why I began my Live-stream Facebook classes. These can be a challenge, especially the adult ones as I have to work through a whole painting "live" but I believe it's an excellent way to show students and viewers, the whole process, mistakes and all and hopefully help to take the fear away from giving it a go!
I believe it is important to share the positivity and creativity of art at the this unprecedented time, I feel it's my contribution to helping make life a bit more bearable."
