About the Artist
Doris Hone is an Irish artist working mainly in oils and acrylics.
Creative even as a child, her artistic side has come to the fore after a career first in nursing and then as a business owner. Doris is largely self-taught but has also been inspired in more recent years by classes taken at The Leitrim Design House. Her subject matter and style is wide-ranging from the wild beauty of the Irish countryside to modernist interpretations of everyday objects. Exclusively she has named her paintings after her family and close friends. Born in County Sligo, she now works from her home studio in Carrick-on-Shannon.
