Aida Garrity is inspired by life and beauty, capturing individual personalities, moods and emotions. In these paintings of golf-inspired landscapes and scenes from her previous 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.
Aida paints in plein air monthly with other members of the “Peace River Painters Plein Air Group” in central Florida and in the fall, she joins her artist friends in the majestic area of Monhegan Island off the coast of Maine.
Most recently, she had a solo exhibit at the Dublin Arts Council titled “Aida Garrity: Dublin Goldscapes” and was also juried in the very prestigious Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Arts Club 124th Annual Open Exhibition at the Salmagundi Arts Club.
