My name is Ciara and I make art


I have always longed for (and been terrified of) the Wild. My work is inspired by the things that connect me to this wildness, the fauna that inhabits it, the mystery that our modern world is trying desperately to control. My hope is that my work inspires you to seek out and encounter a little bit of that Wild every single day. Ours is a world worth saving, and I'm doing what I can, one painting at a time, to share that hope with you.
