Jacinta Crowley-Long
 Has a deserved reputation as one of Irelands foremost contemporary      canine and equestrian artist,  and is also acclaimed for her paintings of  rural  landscape, and period interiors. She graduated with a PhD from UCC, where she lectured for ten years before relocating to an eighteenth century rectory on the Wicklow/Carlow border.
 Her subject matter depicts the changing moods and drama of nature in the landscape. The empathy she clearly has for her subjects,  allied with her technical ability and knowledge of anatomy and acute observation, can be seen in her evocative paintings of domestic live stock and country artefacts– all drawn from the areas surrounding her home.
 She has been selected in recent years to exhibit at the prestigious International Exhibition of Equestrian Art at both Christies and  Mall Gallery,London.
 In 2005 she was invited by Claude-Hugues Pissaro (Grandson of Camille), to exhibit at the Salon de La Rochelle, where she was awarded a Gold Medal d’Honneur. Other exhibitions include the American Academy of Equine Art, Salon International de Samaur,  The  Irish National Stud, and the Palace House Gallery, Newmarket, England. Her paintings are featured in both corporate and private collections including the OPW, ETP International, De Beers SA and BP International.
