Clare O’Donoghue

TELL US ABOUT YOU.
I am a simple creature, I live a super low key life on the coast, think recluse who loves family, friends , nature,  mixed lollies, cheap chocolate -  not keen on posh treats, ocean & of course painting. I usually wake up feeling very excited about nothing. My moto is 'simple is best' just like my mum taught me. Pass me a Vietnamese iced coffee & some chocolate......life is grand.

WHEN DID YOU BEGIN PAINTING?
I have always loved art all through school. I started painting properly after I had my first baby 26 years ago. I then had 3 more babies & have since painted full time.

-
WHERE DO YOU DRAW YOUR INSPIRATION FROM?
My inspiration comes from everywhere, this sounds super cliche but it's true.
Nature, my children, conversations , shadows, daily life events etc .....
WHAT MUSIC ARE YOU LISTENING TO AT THE MOMENT?
Oh my goodness my taste in music is very very broad.
From Dolly Parton to The Herd & everything in between.
70s classics never fail to make me smile & motivate a little foot tap.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE OUTFIT IN YOUR WARDROBE?
I am a bit torn over this question between a pink/coral/watermelon linen jumpsuit with contrast khaki stitching which I seem to wear ALOT or a neck tie of choice that I wear with most outfits. I have probably 50 different ones that I mix with jeans & a top etc.

WHERE IS YOUR FAVOURITE SPACE IN YOUR HOME?
Hands down the deck. I am a lizard. I spend so many hours outside on that deck. When I get too hot in summer I fill the outdoor bath with cold water & dip in & out its perfect.
WHAT IS THE BEST ADVICE YOU'VE EVER BEEN GIVEN?
The good old classic, treat people how you would like to be treated.

-

WHAT ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF?
Seems like a standard answer but honestly watching my four children particularly my Louis now 26 & Ruby 25 year olds turn into happy, kind, thoughtful adults & having such success in their lives in all aspects makes my heart burst with pride.

WHAT IS ON YOUR PENNY AND REIBY WISHLIST?
Wish list item Mother Denim The Hustler ankle Frey jeans .....love the fade on the leg & anything with a raw edge belongs in my wardrobe. I also adore pink and would like the World of Nomads Stella boatneck knit it bloom and I find it hard to go past a chunky suede boot, I love the Estillo Vally boots!
