HELEN O'KEEFFE ~ Island Home II - Oil on Board
HELEN O'KEEFFE ~ Island Home II - Oil on Board

Helen O'Keeffe graduated from Crawford College of Art with a B.A. (Honours) in Fine Artin 2010.
Helen is a painter and divides her time between Schull and Cork City.
Generations of her family have come from the Schull area including her Grandmother who wasborn in Schull and her Great Great Grandmother who was born on Horse Island.
She has a deep love and affinity with West Cork.

Her work is inspired by imagery, whether personal or found. These she uses as an initial point of departure. Her concern is not necessarily the recreation of a specific image or moment, but rather the recreation of something informed by the act of remembering, or an emotional response to her surrounds.
Long Island, off Schull, has also had a fascination for her and in recent years she has stayed for days at a time on the Island, and many of her works are the result of these visits.

Helen's work is a combination of Abstract and Representational elements, the way she sees it.

It is represented in several public collections
including the Office of Public Works and Ely Lilly and is also represented in corporate and
private collections both here and abroad.

Helen's work can be viewed in the Lavitt Gallery, Cork, and also in her
studio in the Backwater Artists Studios, Wandesford Quay, Cork
and on her own website: www.helenokeeffe.ie
