Alan Shoosmith



Since moving to the west of Ireland in 1989, I have developed an interest in watercolour painting and creative photography, particularly enjoying the play of light on field patterns, rock and water that seems so special in this region. I have a great love of wildlife & nature and conservation themes are a regular feature of my paintings.

I co-ordinated the Clare Arts Office Embrace Programme for people with disabilities until retiring in 2016 and I am a qualified trainer, still working regularly with the Dulick Centre in Ennis. Since setting up my home-based Rockvale Garden Studio, I have run several evening & Saturday courses in watercolour painting. Set in the heart of the Burren lowlands I am surrounded by inspiration for the atmospheric watercolours I aim to create.

My landscapes and seascapes can be seen by appointment at the studio and at the various Inis Artists exhibitions. I am also happy to work on private commissions.
