BIO:  Róisín O’Farrell

 

Irish artist, Róisín O’Farrell was born to a family of talented artists. Her exposure to art from an early age offered her a visual apprenticeship to both classical and contemporary art.

 

Róisín paints bright, vibrantly colorful paintings in textured, buttery oils with a contemporary finish. Her work is influenced by a sense of home, and feature warm, light filled period interiors, tumbled families of rain boots, and quirky china teacups.

 

First discovered in early 2009, Róisín has since then exhibited widely in established galleries throughout Ireland and the UK. Roisin’s success continued to gain momentum with sellout events in London, Bristol and Newcastle. Further events have already been planned for Dublin, London, Edinburgh and New York.

 

“How I paint is as important to me as what I paint. Certainly light, colour and texture are critical elements.

 

Alternating between pallet knife and brush allows me to create rich textures, use lots of juicy paint and suggest rather than describe. I'm affected by bold jewel colours and treat myself to them as I work, like sweeties from a box.”
