Miriam Dowling was born in Dublin in 1982 and showed an interest in art and wildlife from an early age. Miriam graduated with a Degree in Fine art in Dunlaoghaire College of Art, Design and Technology in 2003.
Miriam’s work is inspired by her childhood holidays in the Irish countryside. Her paintings capture dramatic Irish landscapes. Through the medium of oils she portrays a sense of a place and movement using a mixture of different textures and colours. She primarily focuses on encapsulating the atmospheric elements of the Irish countryside through all the seasons. Miriam has developed a distinct and recognisable style throughout her years of painting.
