DOREEN DRENNAN

Doreen Drennan is a landscape/seascape artist living in Lisdoonvarna Co. Clare. She commenced her artistic career in 1981 when she attended the National College of Art in Dublin and was taught under the direction of the late Henry Healy RHA.
Having studied with a strong restricted palette she then progressed to develop her own technique when she moved to Co. Clare where she was so influenced by the atmospheric skies, the moody landscapes and the wild Atlantic.
Her preferred medium is oil on canvas and the palette knife features strongly in her paintings. She draws her inspiration from the magnificent scenery which abound all around her locality from the Cliffs of Moher to the fishing village of Doolin, the uniqueness of the Burren to the boats at Kinvara and on up to the wild exotic beauty of Achill Island where she was born.

Her painting technique has been described as loose and fluid, using brush and knife to create the shapes and images, and her palette carefully chosen and mixed to portray the exquisite colours of the West of Ireland.
