Aida Garrity is inspired by life and beauty, capturing individual personalities, moods and emotions. In this exhibition of golf-inspired landscapes from her current residence in Dublin, Ohio, she undertakes the challenge of crafting a composition that evokes emotion and transmits a story to the viewer. Her sweeping wide-brush background strokes and subtle soft-brush details capture the beauty of the Dublin landscape — its intensely green grass, majestic trees and manicured golf courses. Garrity discovered her passion for painting at age five through children’s art classes at the Museo de Bellas Artes in Caracas, Venezuela. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Metallurgical Engineering from the Imperial College, London and worked for 30 years in the engineering field. She returned to her artwork with an MFA from San Francisco Academy of Art University in 2010 and exhibits her work in national and international exhibitions.
