Breakwater Studio on Rathlin Island is the Studio and Home of myself, Yvonne Braithwaite ASU(Art Society of Ulster).
Originally from Killinchy, County Down, I have exhibited in a variety of Galleries both locally and internationally and I continue to produce works in the form of commissions of local scenes of landscapes and seascapes on Rathlin and around Ireland. My preferred medium is Acrylic however I have produced some works in watercolour. I am a full member of The Art Society of Ulster and an active member of Kilmood Art Club.
Some examples of my previous and current works can be viewed on the following pages.
I also produce a wide range of cards from some of my works all of which are available direct from the Studio.
In addition to the Art and Cards the Studio also stocks a range of Pottery, "Bog Standard" Candles, Lip Balms, Soaps and Diffusers, Handbags, Scarves, hand made "Rathlin Mugs" and other small giftware items.
As part of my artistic production I have recently started to produce wildlife paintings on small rocks under the title "Rathlin Rock", these are predominently of seabirds and seals and some images of my work so far can be viewed on the following pages. Again these are available from the Studio.
Please take your time to view the images on the following pages and feel free to contact me should you be interested in any of the pieces.
I am generally in residence at the Studio all year round and I would be pleased to welcome you should you make a visit to Rathlin, a place I can heartily recommend either for a day trip or indeed to spend some time in one of the local Self Catering Cottages, Bed and Breakfasts or for the more adventurous one of the Hostels all of which provide good accommodation as detailed on the Rathlin Island Website(www.rathlincommunity.org
To view a short video of the Studio and the surrounding area please click on the following link http://youtu.be/013ig5ovnrMVisitors to Rathlin Island should be aware that access to cash on the Island is limited. There are 2 locations where cash can be accessed during opening hours and they are McCuaigs Pub and The Post Office. Hours of business for both can be viewed on the Rathlin Community Website but it is advisable to ensure that you bring enough cash for the duration of your stay as most businesses do not have access to payment by debit or credit card.
