Bríd Fanning is an Irish artist from Oldcastle, in Co. Meath. She creates art where she reconnects with our history by exploring our irishness. "Whether its our people, animals or our landscape, I like to express who we are through bold colour".
She was one of 6 craft businesses selected by Meath LEO to exhibit at SHOWCASE in 2022 & 2023 Ireland's largest retail trade show.
Bríd also exhibited for the first time at ART SOURCE in the RDS in Dublin in November 2022, Irelands largest art exhibition.
Bríd is building a portfolio of art collectors on the international market including, USA, Canada, Australia, UK, mainland Europe as well as great success at home.
Bríd is proudly supported by Meath Arts Office and Creative Ireland.
Co. Meath is steeped in Irish myth, legend and history. I live close to a fairy fort and a megalithic tomb (Loughcrew Cairns) so its easy to find inspiration by this amazing rural landscape that surrounds me. My work is always an evolving process. I'm constantly learning and developing my style. In addition to my original pieces I also combine my artwork with my graphic design background to create unique art prints.
My background is in Visual Communications. In recent years I worked as a Graphic Design Consultant. Previous to that I worked as a In-house Graphic Designer for commercial businesses for various disciplines including architecture, finance, on-line gaming and animal nutrition. In the early days I worked in marketing and advertising here in Ireland and also in the USA and Australia.
I continued to develop my art skills over the years completing courses at the National College of Art and Design in “Drawing and Contemporary Art Practice” and “Colour Theory.” I also completed a course on “Illustration for Children’s Picture Books”.
