Many areas along the west coast of Ireland have provided inspiration for artists over many generations, none more so than Donegal.
This area of Donegal is home to a thriving community of artists and Galanta Gifts Carrigart Co. Donegal offer an outlet for them to showcase their art. One of these local artists is Michelle Doherty. She works with several mediums all inspired by the local landscape. She also runs an art class for children called Réaltaí Ealaíne. Michelle talked to us about her joy in passing her experience on to the children and developing their skills and confidence.
