1ST PLACE winner ANNA KENNEDY was born in Dalkey, Co. Dublin, Ireland in 1958.
Kennedy explains her history, “Over the years I have had the lucky opportunity to travel extensively where I have encountered the ways of life of so many different people, going about their daily chores, or just sitting, chatting, and contemplating life. My love of photography led me to the art of painting. Through my own research and study of other artists, particularly realism and the works of the “Old Masters”, I began to paint. I am self taught and my love is portraiture. My preferred medium is oil, but I also love to work with charcoal.”
Kennedy’s work hangs in private and public collections, both in Ireland and internationally. She presently lives and works in Stepaside where she specializes in portraiture and also runs an art group.
