Lorna Watkins Artist

Lorna Watkins Artist

A painter, designer and creative facilitator based In Sligo, Ireland

I am an artist, designer and creative facilitator living in Sligo, North West of Ireland.

My art is colourful, fun and expressive, it would be true to say I am obsessed with colour.  My practice is rooted in drawing and I’m always recording ideas in my sketchbook.  The ideas come from everyday life experiences, living by the sea, bringing up my daughters and a large hairy dog or when I get to travel.  I trained as a printed textile designer and my work reflects that background with lots of quirky patterns.

I sell paintings through The Doorway Gallery, Dublin and the Lavelle Gallery, Clifden and sell prints of my work, beautifully handbound noteboks, locally harvested seaweed for your bath online.

I’m bring tourists here to Sligo and the North West of Ireland on 1/2 day painting experiences, under the brand A Studio Near The Sea, where I guide people to local beauty spots to paint, draw, reconnect and relax.
