This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Born in Bristol, England, the daughter of a solicitor, Kate Dobbin moved in 1887 to Cork where she married Alfred Graham Dobbin, the city's High Sheriff, and owner of the Imperial Hotel. From 1891-1895, Lady Dobbin studied drawing and painting at the Crawford Municipal School of Art.  In 1894 she submitted a work to the Royal Hibernian Academy's Annual Exhibition in Dublin - the first of more than one hundred contributions to the RHA, up to 1947.

She specialized in watercolour landscapes of County Cork and Connemara, as well as flowerpieces and the occasional portrait.  In 1899, she exhibited at the Water Colour Society of Ireland becoming a regular contributor for almost fifty years.  In addition, she exhibited at the Munster Fine Art Club and at the Fine Art Society in London.

Despite suffering from severe arthritis, she continued painting into her 80s, and eventually died in Victoria Hospital in Cork, outliving her son Alfred W Dobbin (who was also a painter), by 13 years.
