Paintings from Marie Deese O'Driscoll

About the artist:  An Irish artist living in Germany at present. Reflected in her work is the deep-rooted sense of being a part of Ireland and not just an observer.

At the age of 19, she was discovered as an up and coming young talent by the Abbey Theatre and was employed there in the design department, to learn the intricacies of set design, costume design and scenic art. She became well established on the theatrical scene and subsequently, went freelance and worked for every major theatre and opera house in Ireland, while summers were spent on Sherkin.  At 25 she married, left Ireland and spent ten years touring the world with her husband, painting as she went. Now, she has a successful career as a landscape und portrait artist.

Connection to West Cork: Marie’s father, John “Denis” O' Driscoll of North Kilmona, Sherkin Island, left his farm and fishing nets to go to England for his cousin’s wedding. In 1948, 27 years later, he returned to Ireland as a successful business man. During the time spent across the water, he met and married a west of Ireland lady of great beauty. They had three girls who enjoyed an upbringing steeped in legend, song and stories of pirates, sunken galleons, ruined fortresses and deserted islands. Summers were spent on Sherkin Island.

Now, Marie divides her time between Esslingen and Baltimore
