Dr Doris Rohr’s research and practice involves drawing, writing and the spaces in between. Writing is situated alongside drawing and mark making, at times merging, but also asserting a separate existence from drawing. The practice of drawing is primarily paper-based, and frequently involves outdoor research into landscape. Fieldwork consists of walking, haptic interaction with site and notebook activities of plein air drawing and writing, underpinned through phenomenological encounter. Her drawings have been shown in Ireland, Britain, Germany, the United States, Thailand and Taiwan. She has published articles on drawing and memory, teaching drawing and community engagement. Doris Rohr is Senior Lecturer in Fine Art Drawing at Liverpool Hope University. She is editorial board member of Drawing: Research, Theory, Practice. She recently completed a Ph.D. on the contemporary relevance of John Ruskin’s teaching and writing on drawing and nature.
