Roisin Doherty

Donegal, Ireland

I am an artist from a rural area on the coast of Donegal called Cruit Island. Growing up I learned to have a great respect And appreciation for the natural world and have always been fascinated by wildlife. However, this also meant I witnessed first hand the negative impact that human activity can have on delicate ecosystems. 

I recently graduated from a 4 year honours degree in contemporary art. My practice mainly involves pen ink and paper, creating intricate large scale drawings. I also use photography on a daily basis. I focus on themes such as wildlife population decline, cause and protection. I study the form, habitat, behaviour and characteristics of birds, the Irish hare and many other native animals. This is a subject and passion that I carry with me for my entire life.
