I was always interested in Art from a very young age, I was always drawing and water painting. I would have loved to have attended Art College, but having left school before I did the leaving cert., I could not attend, however I continued to draw and paint,and eventually returned to school and I received hons., art leaving cert., I since have volunteered teaching art at the Balbriggan Library and have had some success with various exhibitions.
I have been painting in acrylics and water colours over the years. I have always been interested in boats and seascapes as I lived near the sea so I had plenty of inspiration at hand. Recently I have been trying my hand at Abstract painting, and I find this medium very creative, and will continue studying various abstract artists.
I would encourage anybody interested in studying Art to follow their dream as I believe that everyone is an artist an all you need is practice.
Hi my names ZEUS COONEY. I am an artist who paints landscapes and abstract
art. I have studied art in Hungary , New York, and Dublin. In my work I give two free seven week art classes a year and exhibit plus commissions …The reason I give free art lessons is to encourage someone else find the peace I have found in art on a spiritual walk
HOW DID IT BEGIN
Seven years ago , I had never painted in my life, but I always felt an urge within me to paint. When a friend said he had an appointment with a curator of an art shop, I asked if I may go along and bring something I would paint. He said sure, that night I painted the abstract I always seen in my mind.
In the art shop the curator laid my abstract on the floor and studied it for about an hour. He said whatever money I have in my wallet is yours, I want you too get canvas and paint. He gave me about a thousand Euros. Ever since that I paint.
