Artist: Ann McKenna
Medium: Drypoint Acrylic & 24ct gold leaf
As a painter and printmaker, Ann explores and draws inspiration from Irish legends, fairy tales , romantic tragedies – stories that are steeped in our culture and inhabit our earliest memories. The organic nature of these stories interest Ann, in the sense that they have been told and retold over generations.
Ann works in acrylic, oil, ink and drypoint etching.
The images she creates are highly narrative, with a strong emphasis on draughtsmanship, bringing many much loved, iconic tales to life.
