I’m Shevaun Doherty. I am an Irish Botanical and Nature Artist, and Creative Art Tutor.
I am very inspired by the natural world and enjoy the quiet meditation that painting from nature brings. I paint in watercolour, delighting in the tiny details that that are often overlooked.
Using art to raise awareness is something that I believe in. My proudest achievement to date has been designing a set of postage stamps for Ireland featuring native Irish bees. I also designed the logo of the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan and try to share interesting stories about the plants and insects that I paint on my social media pages.
I really enjoy teaching and love sharing my passion for art with others, encouraging them to reach their creative potential. I am the vellum tutor for the Society of Botanical Artists Distance Learning Diploma Course, and also give regular workshops both in Ireland and abroad.
In 2019, I will be launching my new Online Botanical Art Course which I am very excited about!

On July 12th 2018, An Post issued a set of Irish stamps featuring my native bee illustrations!
