My name is Jacinta Callaghan, a local business owner of Jacinta’s Hairdressers in the quaint village of Kerrykeel, Co. Donegal Ireland my salon can be found on the route to the Fanad Peninsula. As a child I was always creative and artistic. Iam self taught. I still love to attend art classes so to be with others. So that is why I turned my hands to hairdressing and art.
I started attending painting classes in Letterkenny in and was pleasantly surprised to sell my first painting in 2002 at an exhibition in Ace of Arts ( Frame Masters now)in Letterkenny. I then continued to paint and refine my skills always photographing some of my favourite landscapes, flowers and people and animals which I would subsequently paint in the comfort of my own home. Since selling my first painting in 2002.I have sold numerous paintings over the years and had paintings commissioned from various places including Ireland, America and New Zealand all around the world. I continue to painting using a variety of media including oil paint, acrylic and water colour currently favouring oil paint. I mostly enjoy painting landscapes and nature in particular local landscapes such as the Fanad Lighthouse and Ballymastocker Bay. In Jacinta’s Hair Salon in Kerrykeel, you will find some of her paintings displayed.
My next venture is to open my own art gallery in the salon seling art and crafts.
