Marian Sheehan Ahern
I am a mixed media artist and tattoo artist from Cork living in Mallow for the past six years. I have a BA (Hons.) in Fine Art Printmaking and graduated in 2015 with an MA by Research through Art Practice from LSAD. My work has received the Locating the Gothic Legacy Award and The Curators Choice Drawing Award. Exhibiting both nationally and internationally since 2015, my work has been included in group shows in Brazil, Japan, Germany and the USA.
My art practice is strongly influenced by my research into Irish folklore superstition and oral storytelling. I feature Irish flora and fauna which have rich links to Irish cautionary tales within my work.
