“The areas that I have painted are of particular importance perhaps because they have drawn me back to Ireland time and again. They encompass character, mood and mystery that I feel will always intrigue me. I feel as though I can learn from these places and revisit them like old friends, acquiring new knowledge and insight with every meeting. They give so much to me and never ask for anything in return.” Hannah Mooney
