Earlier in her career in Ireland Coyle exhibited in many galleries in Ireland and exhibited for the Irish National Portrait exhibition in 2005. Coyle also exhibited for charities in the Royal Hibernian Academy and Adam’s Fine Art auctioneers. Just before moving to London Coyle had solo exhibitions in the Signal Art Centre in Co. Wicklow and the Bank of Ireland’s art centre in Dublin, and was described as ‘one of the city’s most promising new artist’ {Metro Life newspaper- January 2006}, and a ‘rising young artist’ {Irish Independent- May 2006}.

Although Coyle’s first interest in art in the late 1990’s included an introduction to 1st wave American Pop Art of the 1950’s, her figurative work focuses on contemporary imagery to push ideas and produce accomplished paintings of a Fine Art standard using process and execution of ideas. Most recently her figurative painting series ‘12.16’ won her a Special Artist Award from BESTART.

Coyle is also working on an ongoing abstract painting project which commenced in 2002. In recent years this project branched into installation work and in 2018 the individual pieces received a special recognition and an award for excellence from Florida art gallery LightSpaceTime. In 2019 the ongoing work won an Honorable Mention Award from New Jersey’s J.Mane Gallery and NYC’s Grey Cube Gallery.  Most recently in 2020 her three dimensional painting ‘Expansion’ won an Honorable Mention Award from Art Room Gallery.

While exhibiting in London since 2006, Coyle has expanded her audience exhibiting in America where her work has been positively received. She has also exhibited in NYC charity events alongside artists such as Jeff Koons, Yoko Ono, Ed Ruscha, Kiki Smith and renowned composer Philip Glass.

This year Coyle continues her work in figurative Pop art and abstraction. She has also started working on woodblock prints and after 16 years has now returned to photography, focusing in Polaroid and 120mm camera formats. The work deals with ideas in capturing and using negative space as a focal point.
