Róisín Curé grew up in the Wicklow Mountains and moved to Galway in the early 90s to start a science degree, but the lure of the West proved irresistible and she lives there to this day with her family. A keen urban sketcher since 2012, she published An Urban Sketcher's Galway in 2019, and The Urban Sketcher's Handbook: Drawing Expressive People in 2020, seventh in the very popular series. An Urban Sketcher's Dublin was due for release in 2020 but will be delayed due to the pandemic. Róisín is Ireland's only official Urban Sketching Instructor with the global urban sketching organisation, and taught in the USk Symposia in Porto (2018) and Amsetrdam (2019). As well as writing and illustrating books, Róisín currently teaches on- and offline, with workshops and classes at home and across the world.
