Róisín Tree (McNamee) is a multidisciplinary artist from Sligo Ireland. She works in areas producing photographic collage, hand painted signs, community art projects and sculptural installation.
Róisín’s main areas of focus are on that of bridging worlds, both the modern and traditional, the real and the ethereal, mythology and logos. Bridging the working methods of trade, craft and fine art, her work often explores methods of communication between the plant and human world and how this can expand consciousness with desire to bring each world closer. Through this exploration she is inspired by the mythology and folklore of Ireland. In this she seeks to form a deeper bond with her own homeland of Sligo and beyond.
Róisín received her BA in Fine and Applied Art from the University of Ulster, Belfast in 2006 and her Masters in Fine Art (Art in the Digital World) from National College of Art and Design. Her research during her masters was focussed on building a story about ecological, technological and spiritual concerns exploring organic materials, plants, food.
After successfully completing her Masters Róisín became co-founder of Satellite Studios, an artists’ studio and gallery, located in the Hendrons Building in Dublin. This place was created to welcome and provide work and exhibition space for artists from diverse backgrounds in craft, design, tech, music, fashion, and fine art.
