Ann Doohan

Born in Dublin and raised  in Co. Meath I am mostly a self taught artist. While working in the Civil Service by day I attended the National College of Art and Design at night. In 2015 myself, my partner and my 3 beloved dogs moved to Killashee, Co. Longford where I have my own studio. Like many other artists I have been held spellbound by the beauty of Longford. The Lakelands, Inland Waterways, Boglands and many fine buildings such as St.Mels provide plenty of scenes for the Artist to capture. I use strong vibrant colours to create exciting skylines, rolling fields, bogs and mountains. There is a simple beauty in the landscape of Co. Longford with its old farmhouses, farms and farm animals, bogland and its workers, boating, and angling. These provide a rich hunting ground for a artistic study of life.I am privileged to have found my own creative place in Co. Longford.
