I’m Shevaun Doherty. I am a botanical artist, natural history illustrator and art tutor living in Dublin. I’m very inspired by the natural world and enjoy the quiet meditation that painting from nature brings. I paint from life, usually plants and seeds that I have collected on my travels, but the occasional bug or feather gets painted too. I love the challenge of trying to capture all the tiny details and colours.
I paint the things that capture my interest. Sometimes it’s the beauty of an object that draws me, but often my art begins with an interesting story. The challenge then is how to reveal the hidden beauty. Teaching helps me share my passion.

It’s official! On July 12th 2018, An Post will be issuing a set of Irish stamps featuring my native bee illustrations!
