Sheila McClean

Sheila McClean, member of the ARUA, is a notable Irish painter, whose impressionist style painting has led to her be described as a "painter's painter". Originally from Moville and now living in Derry, she paints the land and sea around her.

The late Derek Hill, a great admirer of her work, said, "Her paintings capture the Donegal we all feel in retrospect".

Joseph McWilliams, PPRUA, said, "Her landscapes are painted landscapes, her boglands are expressive marks of paint, on richly textured surfaces redolent of bog cotton and dank brown pools..... Her work reflects a deep understanding of both place and paint".
