I came upon a Place” is a new series of paintings by the artist Kate Beagan. Inspired by her surroundings in Co. Monaghan, Kate is drawn to the dramatic light cast upon the landscape and how ordinary subjects can become extraordinary when viewed through this light.

In this collection, Kate captures the small winding roads of a county that is unspoilt and set apart from any other because of its drumlins.
