DEE PIETERS - Artist's Biography
Dee trained in Devon, London and Ireland. She works in oils, mainly with palette knife, to achieve texture, tone and depth.
A signature theme of her work is the play of light on water.
Big skies, reflected light, cliffs, the changing moods of the coastline, the juxtaposition of the sea and the surrounding landscape, mountains and hidden lakes, bog lands, heather in sunlight - all inspire Dee. Walks on coastal paths looking down on the sweep of a beach at tide’s ebb, or along moorland tracks which lead to distant places provide her with colours and shapes and contours of the scenery that she loves to observe.
Yet she paints from her memories.
Dee has exhibited successfully since 2000 and has been included in selected group shows in Dublin, Cork City and West Cork. She has had solo shows in 2007 and 2010. Her work is in private collections throughout Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, the UK, USA, and South Africa as well as with corporate clients and the Office of Public Works, and is on display in Brussels at the headquarters of Ireland’s representative to the European Union.
2008 her work was selected for the Oireachtais Exhibition and in
2009 she was invited to exhibit in the CASE exhibition.
She paints from her studio in West Cork.
