Róisín O’Farrell was born in 1968 and was brought up in an artistically talented family. Her introduction to art began from an early age, allowing her to mature a strong appreciation for both classical and contemporary art. It was in early 2009, that Roisin’s work was first discovered. Since her official introduction to the artworld, she has achieved great success, exhibiting in a number of established galleries throughout Ireland & England. Roisin’s success continued to gain momentum with sellout events in London, Bristol and Newcastle. Further events have already been planned for Dublin, London, Edinburgh and New York.
