Hello, I’m Eddie Doran, an artist and art instructor living in Ireland. I was born in Dublin and trained as an illustrator in advertising. About thirty years ago I resigned from full time employment in the textile industry in order to pursue my career as a self employed artist.
In the years since then, I’ve honed my skills working in a broad range of creative areas including, graphic design, mural painting, illustrative art and more.
I began my career training as a layout artist/illustrator in the various Dublin advertising agencies. Moving to England in the 70’s led to a number of different jobs including decorating reproduction antiques. While designing sets for various drama groups I began acting and directing. It was at this time that I began to hone my teaching skills, conducting drama workshops.
Since the mid 80’s I have been involved in art education within the community. I have facilitated workshops and training courses for numerous organisations, including South Dublin County Council and the V.E.C. As well as teaching, I now accept commissions on a wide range of projects. So, welcome to my website. I hope you like what you see in this small selection of my work, some of which are available to buy online. If you need to contact me for commissioned artwork please use the contact form or at info @ EdsIrishArt . com.
I hope you enjoy your visit.
