Rowan was raised in East Clare by an artistic family. A musician all his life, he graduated from university in Dublin, 2010, where he studied Contemporary Music Performance. Since then he has worked with youth groups, carpenters, done installation work for artists in Ireland and Australia, worked in film, and with theatre groups. He is a lifelong vegetarian and a lover of hiking, yoga, surfing and skateboarding. In recent years he has been drawn to meditation and mindfulness and has found them an invaluable support in not only everyday life, but also in his creative practices. In his late twenties he returned to university to study set construction at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and has recently spent a month long research trip on the isle of Lewis. There he studied the methods of construction used for the bothys, Black Houses, and the making of Harris Tweed. This research included working with joiners renovating an old croft using traditional woodworking techniques. In 2021 Rowan's film Work as a Vehicle for Growth was released with support from the Arts Council, and premiered at the Mountshannon Arts Festival. He has a real passion for working with people and loves the creative atmosphere of working in interdisciplinary environments. Holistic living and a sense of community are close to Rowan’s heart, and he is proud to call East Clare his home.
