Amanda Doran is the Paul Funge Resident Artist for 2018/19 at Gorey School of Art, Amanda used her time on the residency to challenge herself with a portrait project that was reminiscent of traditional portrait setups but approached in a fresh, fun, social and engaging manner. Her space quickly became an inviting, almost domestic place for people to meet and chat. Using humble drawing materials Amanda spent her time recording her sitters through her typical energetic, free flowing and fun mark-making explorations.
