Deirdre Kelly is an Irish artist with a BA in Fine Art Painting from Limerick School of Art and Design and a secondary school art teacher with a Professional Masters in Education. Her work is a documentation of her walks, excursions and experiences in nature through the use of collected found objects and imagery from said walks. The beauty of nature is something she wishes to examine, to comment on and to highlight to others. She attempts to do this by examining notions of ecology, geology and zoology.
