I'm Beata Dagiel and I welcome you to browse through my paintings and poems created in my studio in Cloyne, East Cork, Ireland.
My art is exploring the moments in life when we get a glimpse beyond what we can perceive with our eyes. It's often very little things, very unglamorous moments, seemingly meaningless, that unveil the truth about our being. Like hoovering a bedroom floor, picking strawberries, counting grains of ray or gazing at landscapes. Life is full of mysteries and clues on what's important and I share my little discoveries here through my art.
Some of my paintings are accompanied by poems and songs.
I am currently working on three different series: 'Irish Landscape Mosaics' (stained glass effect on canvas), 'Ordinary Saints', 'Country Life'
In my private live, I am a wife and a very uncool mum of teens. Professionally I'm a restaurant marketer, and a former teacher. I am the founder of @soulsessionsireland, where I sing and play guitar with other musicians with whom we occasionally organise contemplation, music and reflection events in Christian spirituality. For the love of East Cork I have recently partnered with @stayatsentio to produce our own wonderful East Cork postcards for local stores.
Wishing you happy browsing,
