On leaving school, Gillian Binchy worked as a graphic artist. After four years, she changed career and became an accomplished Gilder and Restorer of Antique Frames. But about eight years ago she went back to her first love, equestrian painting.
She exhibits and sells in various galleries, including Redmond Fine Art, Iniscara Gallery and The Clifden Art Gallery. She has also completed commissions on many high profile race horses and show horses.
Gillian keeps and trains horses on her farm in Glencree and is a keen showjumper.
