Róisín was born and raised in Clonmel, Co Tipperary, and graduated from The Irish School of Animation in Ballyfermot in Dublin. Today she works from her bright little ‘Ateliê’ in sunny Brazil, which is where she has been based since 2015, and manages to visit home about once a year.
Róisín loves bright colours (especially yellow!), experimenting with shapes and lines, and enjoys creating charming and exciting worlds for her characters.
She has illustrated a number of children’s books for publishers such as Little Tiger Press, Igloo Books, Futa Fata and Priddy Books.
