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-ordinate the Clare Arts Office Embrace Programme for people with disabilities and I am a qualified trainer, working regularly with groups from the Brothers of Charity, the Dulick Enterprise Centre and HSE Mental Health Association. Having recently set up home-based Rockvale Garden Studio, I now run a series of evening & Saturday courses in watercolour painting.

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.
