Josie McMorrin trained in Edinburgh College of Art and then taught art at secondary school level in Scotland before moving to Dublin in 1999. She then continued her teaching Career in Marino College.
She has always drawn, painted and displayed her work, by contributing to group shows and exhibitions. However has never focused on producing a show.
Her collection of work entitled "sidetracked" stems from a realisation that her time to achieve this ambition is not limitless.
The subject matter developed from her cycling activities such as exploring canal paths cycle ways and track thereby discovering the city landscape on an alternative route.
