She was a recipient of Artlinks bursary in 2018 and of County Wexford Arts Department’s Tyrone Guthrie award in 2014. In addition to her own painting practice, she has over ten years’ experience facilitating art workshops, working with both children and adults of all ages and abilities, using a wide variety of materials and processes. She is experienced in designing and delivering age/ability appropriate programmes that are educational, engaging and fun, in a positive and encouraging environment, with each individual working at their own pace. To her it is important that her workshops do not only build upon and/or develop new art making skills, but also are a means of building confidence. Oonagh was awarded primary school residencies under the auspices of the Living Arts Project in 2014, 2106, 2017 and again in 2018. She worked as a facilitator within Wexford Arts Centre’s Insight Education programme from 2010-2017. She currently works as a facilitator within County Wexford Arts Department Arts Ability programme, where she worked with adults with severe and profound intellectual disabilities from 2018 to early 2020 – and since then within the context of mental health. She has adapted the programme during 2020 to fit in with covid restrictions, working with smaller outdoor groups in the summer months and through online and video sessions. WIFI was new to most of the residential units with whom she works, so for participants it has become a whole new way of working. Interestingly, not only have her existing participants engaged fully with it, but it has had the knock-on effect of reaching people that did not previously take part. Oonagh’s studio practice primarily explores themes of identity and memory, making paintings that exude feelings of nostalgia, history and longing. Exhibitions include Scéilini in Paint, a solo show in the Anita Chan Lai-Ling Gallery, Fringe Club, Hong Kong as part of her residency for the Irish festival Asia 2018, with the support of Culture Ireland. Also Painting is dead- WHO SAYS?, group show Kamera 8, Wexford. Her paintings are held in private and corporate collections within Ireland, Hong Kong and the USA.
