Art work[edit]

Falconer's work was recognised by the art world when she won a National RTÉ art competition in October 2001. Twenty-six of her paintings were displayed at the Abode Gallery in Dublin.

In 2003, Falconer was commissioned to paint a portrait of Richard Bennett, Headmaster of Portora Royal School, Enniskillen, the old school of Oscar Wilde and Samuel Beckett.

In 2004 a Japanese girl whom Falconer dressed in sumptuous embroidered brocade was depicted in a stylized painting that was to become one of Falconer's most successful pieces of work.

She has also been living in Rome, Italy and Los Angeles, California, in recent years.
