Self Portrait: West of Ireland, Co. Mayo Artist, Colleen Fitzpatrick - focusing on human behaviour especially through body language

Colleen Fitzpatrick

Colleen Fitzpatrick is a visual artist working in the West of Ireland. Colleen holds a BA in Fine Art from the GMIT, Castlebar, a PhD in the Philosophy of Art & Culture from NUI Galway and an MA in Psychology from UCD Dublin. Colleen's PhD research focused on the intrinsic significance of painting from a phenomenological viewpoint; specifically the relationship between opacity and mindfulness revealed through the intervention of painting: art expands our being by bringing focus in much the same way that mindfulness meditation does. Colleen is also a qualified yoga instructor and is a member of the Branch Collective
