Deirdre O'Byrne

Deirdre received her BA in Visual Communication from the National College of Art & Design in Dublin, Ireland. There she was hired as a full-time illustrator, but gave it up to travel the world after which she landed in the US. There, she worked as a graphic designer in New York, Houston, and Seattle before finally moving to San Diego, which the artist now calls home.

Passionate about wildlife, Deirdre particularly enjoys painting dogs,
cats and birds, but her portfolio of work includes a wide array of animals. The artist’s love of bright colors is evident in her creative combination of realism using vibrant palettes. Through her work, she strives to capture
the animal’s expression and unique personality on canvas, as well as the breed’s distinct characteristics.

Deirdre offers her paintings in two styles: Realistic Color or Multi-Color (vibrant, bright colors). See below:
