Having moved from Dublin to the beautiful countryside of Wexford, she now spends more time rekindling her love for painting, working primarily on commissions. Using oils as her chosen medium, Eve specialises in street-scenes and endeavours to capture the romance of places that hold a special meaning to her clients.
