Discover the critical skills that every abstract artist must master in order to create HIGH-QUALITY ACCOMPLISHED Abstract Art that SELLS.
'Abstract Art Evolution' will take you from an amateur abstract artist to a confident artist who creates accomplished paintings that sell!
Most people think that abstract art is easy..... take it from someone who has been painting for 30+ years...you can't just pick up a paintbrush one day and call yourself an abstract artist.
It doesn't work like that.
IT TAKES REAL SKILL!
And the longer you avoid learning the KEY FUNDAMENTAL SKILLS, the longer it'll take you to create sophisticated paintings.... you know the kind that you are super proud of and that actually sell?
Do you ever create a piece of abstract art and think to yourself, "Gosh, there's something missing and I just don't know what it is..."
You keep looking and just can't put your finger on what the missing ingredient is?
It's probably because you haven't mastered the key fundamental skills that allow you to easily recognise flaws in your painting and how to fix them. And these are the same skills that enable you to take a painting from 'mediocre' to worthy of hanging in a gallery.
HAVE YOU EVER BEEN TOLD TO.....
- Stop daydreaming
- Get a 'real' job
- Find a passion that will put food on the table.....
Being an artist, daring to even call yourself that word out loud, invites everyone and their aunt's unwanted opinion...
Most of the time these people really have your best interests at heart and want you to prevent you from getting hurt. They want to keep you in what they perceive as a 'safety' zone.
But only YOU really know and understand the creative calling within!
If creating art, painting from your soul, and feeling free, feels like what you were put on this earth to do... then IT IS!
It's as simple as that.
When you know, you know!
It's your birthright to follow that calling to be an artist!
Being an artist is NOT an inferior profession, NOR is it just a hobby.
And it is EASIER now than ever before to make what non-artists call a "Real Living" from your work.
It's not only possible to make money from your art... it's also possible to make 'AMAZING AMOUNTS of money from your art and really make a name for yourself RIGHT NOW!
(And not have to wait until you have left this planet for good)
It's not like years ago when you had to rely on galleries and exhibitions to sell your work, we can connect with the WHOLE WORLD through the web. In fact, I sell most of my 4 Figure artwork from social media and my online shop! I'm not limited to my local geographical area.
And I am here to teach you how you can too!
Right now you may be .....
feeling a bit lost as to how to elevate your art so it is good enough to sell.
comparing yourself to other artists you admire on Instagram or Pinterest and thinking 'I'll never be as good as them'.
just starting out in abstract and craving guidance on different painting techniques and needing to understand the foundations of abstraction.
painting abstract art for a while but are still struggling to create vibrant, accomplished paintings that you are proud of and that you want to share with the world.
creating paintings that are ‘all over the place’ and you want to identify your signature style.
losing yourself down the rabbit hole of free painting YouTube videos only to find you are still no further forward and have wasted a ton load of time!
If this sounds like you, Don't worry, I have got you covered...
It doesn't have to be a struggle.
There really is an EASIER way!

Let's face it...
The struggle of creating high-quality abstract art is real!
I know this because I was a beginner too and struggled to master the basics BUT I have emerged as a successful accomplished artist and YOU can achieve this too!
And what's even better ........
I am going to show you how to achieve this WITHOUT the frustration and overwhelm!
I'm Ciara Gilmore and I am a professional abstract artist from Ireland with over 30 years of painting experience.
I fell in love with Abstract Art in more recent years and when I started I hadn't a clue what I was doing!
Seriously.....NO CLUE AT ALL!!
Like so many others, I believed that abstract art would be super easy - a splash of paint here, a splash of paint there and that's it done! No need to learn about colour theory or composition... Just go with the flow, use your intuition.... and you will create masterpieces!
but the truth was I felt frustrated, deflated and my paintings were more often than not, a muddy mess!
Once I accepted that I couldn't improve my art in isolation or rely solely on my intuition, I made it my mission to become the best artist I could be!
I experimented. I practised. I taught myself through lots of courses.
Finally, I felt really happy with what I had achieved.
In fact, I went from an amateur abstract artist to a professional in just over ONE YEAR and I had the best year in my art business in 2020!
Yes during a pandemic!!
I had gone from creating art that was 'soso' to art that was breathtaking, sophisticated AND selling at 3 times my original prices.
I was also accepted into the very first gallery I applied to!
Now I am selling my art for 4 figure price tags and can't keep up with demand!
So, I’m pulling back the curtain and revealing EVERYTHING I’ve learned to create abstract art with a 4 figure price tag! AND I am going to teach you the KEY lessons needed to accelerate your painting skills in manageable bite-sized steps so you won't get overwhelmed and can get results FAST!

Abstract Art Evolution
What former students are saying:
Faye Winters, Scotland
Abstract Art Evolution is everything I had hoped for. It has brought me amazing insight into my own artistic development. Through learning about techniques, following along with painting videos and Ciara’s guidance, my artwork has evolved towards my signature style. I have gained so much more confidence in my own art journey thanks to Ciara and I am so thankful. Ciara is so warm and genuine. I would highly recommend Abstract Art Evolution to anyone who wants to dive into the world of abstract art!
Kelly Schaub, Indiana
Abstract Art Evolution is an awesome course! I love abstract art but really knew nothing about how to go about creating it. Ciara shows you all the secrets of using textures, color values, brush strokes and layering your paints. And of course so much more! I have grown in confidence about my painting since taking her course! She’s so talented and sincere. It’s definitely worth your time and investment!
Tandy Pengelly , France
I have absolutely loved Abstract Evolution course, it has been the impetus behind me returning back to Abstract Expressionism.

Fearless Abstract Art from Abstract Art Evolution Student.
You don't have to invest in this program.
It's obviously your call...but let me ask you something....
If being an artist is calling your name, why aren't you taking action?
If this is your dream, why wouldn't you try everything in your power to realise your creative calling and discover a life filled with joy, fulfilment and abundance?
Alison Leith, England
Ciara has a very warm and friendly approach. She doesn’t hold back on sharing information about her practice either in the video demonstrations or the zoom meetings.
I think the course represents good value for money and gave a terrific amount of information both on the practical side of abstract painting and areas such as where to find inspiration and on the business side including how to go about selling your art.
Jamie De Guire, USA
Ciara, thank you! I am so grateful for you and your ambition in putting this course together! You’ve truly helped me to transform my art and my unique artistic voice and style! I couldn't have done this without your help, guidance, exercises, and determination of helping me to step outside of my comfort zone. Thank you, again!!
I feel so lucky to have found Ciara. Getting to learn from her has been one of my favorite things this year. Her knowledge and willingness to share never disappoints. Learning how to use colors to make a painting stand out and different brush techniques helped me achieve what I was looking for. Her way of teaching is so easy and after each lesson I was more aware of what was missing and more inspired to paint and find my voice.
Do you ever find yourself......
- Lacking in belief in your own skills as an artist?
- Comparing yourself to other artists?
- Always wondering if your work is actually 'GOOD ENOUGH' and whether you really have what it takes to make it as an artist?
It's not always easy to combat the inner critic that lurks in our own minds.
As artists, I think we are our worst critics.
But I have to tell you.... when you learn how to quiet those negative thoughts and inner critical chatter, it becomes easy to let your creativity and intuition flow.
You get to paint from a place of TRUE FREEDOM.
You allow your SOUL'S WORK to come through onto the canvas.
When you can really let go and just paint, it really is a beautiful thing. Not only do you enjoy the process.... your paintings start to connect to people like never before.
And mix this free-flowing intuitive painting with the knowledge of the fundamentals of painting abstract and you have yourself a dynamite combination!
You will be creating paintings that connect SO powerfully with the viewer that they will have no choice but to press that BUY button.
In Abstract Art Evolution I will give you all the strategies you need to build a mindset for success so that you can confidently create, share and sell with ease.
