The Co Waterford Gaeltacht is the inspiration for much of Blawnin Clancy's current body of work. Her delicately painted land and beachscapes have a spellbinding magic and tranquillity and
are fast ensuring her reputation as a painter of great distinction.

Co Council in 2013. She recently completed an Artists Residency at the Cill Rialaig Project in Ballinskelligs, Co Kerry and is the recipient of an ArtLinks Bursary 2014. Her work is held in
civic, corporate and important private collections in Ireland and abroad, and is often featured RTE’s Nationwide and on Imeall, TG4's Irish Language Arts & Entertainment programme.
