Sinéad Fahey
b. 1973, Carrick-on-Suir, Co. Tipperary
“My work is about the feeling I have inside”

Living in Carrick-on-Suir and working in the weavery in Grangemockler Camphill, Sinéad wanted to develop her artistic skills. She spent two years on the KCAT Art Course and then progressed to the Studio where over the years she has developed her own distinctive style. This was brought vividly to life through her co-designing of The Big River parade, working in conjunction with Macnas, Galway. Sinéad has travelled to Belgium, Holland and Japan for residencies and exhibitions.
