Rose Cottage Gallery is the portfolio and home of Kilkenny based artist Susan Keohane. Susan works predominantly with oil and acrylic. Living in Jenkinstown Park with her family and animals, surrounded by the woods, bluebells, river dinin and fields Susan is constantly inspired by both the wildlife, water and the animals that she meets everyday.
Wether it be a wild deer eating her lettuce in the garden, her own hens ambling in the garden, a grouse & family crossing the road or a heifer looking over the fence — she simply loves to paint capturing daylight, shadows, evoking a memory. She delights in capturing the ever changing light, mood and colour over the seasons.
Susan has a Biochemistry Degree and a PGCE for Biology & Science teaching. Her love for the science and natural history is evident in her paintings.
Susan has been painting for as long as she can remember. She is mainly self taught, however has attended various masterclasses to develop her skills in certain areas. She has exhibited in Kilkenny Arts week for several years, Wexford Arts Festival and Pictures on the Priory. Her paintings are currently at her own gallery in Jenkinstown. Selected works can also be purchased as cards or prints.
