Ester, a self-taught artist, started painting full time at the age of 15, studying techniques of the Old Masters and taking advice from artists. Having always had an interest in sculpting, she attended a bronze casting workshop in Leitrim Sculpture Centre in November 2010, continuing with mould making, metal work, etc. She casts her work in LSC and Callow Studio Foundry.
Her work is both representational and impressionistic in painting and sculpture. An early interest and involvement in horses, in particular racehorses, proved a big influence in subject expression. She has also exhibited extensively in group shows in Ireland and abroad.
