Carmel O'CallaghanCarmel O'Callaghan lives in County Donegal, Ireland, where she teaches painting and create's artwork in her studio. The landscape around her and the people and animals in it inspire her to create work full of colour, texture, and expression. Carmel's favourite medium is oil, with pastel, charcoal, and watercolour as alternate media. Her work is to be found in galleries around Ireland and it has found its way to many countries abroad, including the U.K., America, and South Africa.
She have been drawing in charcoal and pastel from a very early age and progressed to painting in oils with in 1997. Carmel also has a degree in environmental biology and she feels this helps her understanding of the natural world and the animals in it which she loves to observe and paint.
