"Inspiration exists but it has to find us working"
I'm an artist and designer based in Dublin, Ireland. I have an honours degree in fine art and have been publishing artist books and zines since 2006 under the name Baby BEEF. In 2011 I founded the Dublin Zine Fair. I have years of experience on the Dublin arts scene working as an event & venue coordinator.
As an artist I work project to project in embroidery, print, animation, artist books, interactive art and street art. I have exhibited my work locally and internationally. I often take on freelance graphic design projects. I run an online business called Rosie's Rags, selling embroidery kits and I also write tutorials for craft magazines based in the UK and the US. This year I started Rad Totes &Pins, a new project mixing art, activism, ethics and awareness.
I have a Professional Masters Degree in Art & Design Education from NCAD . I am a fully qualified art & design teacher and currently teach graphic design at third level at Dublin Institute of Design. I have teaching experience with adults, children and also in the area of special educational needs (SEN).
