Deirdre Byrne is a visual artist working in drawing, painting, illustration, collage and stop-motion animation. She graduated from the National College of Art and Design, Dublin in 2003 with a degree in Fine Art Painting and returned to complete a post graduate course in Visual Art Education. In the studio her work is an ever evolving process; what begins as a painting on paper, may end up being cut into pieces for a collage, or further still be made to move using stop-motion animation. Her work often features the sea, folklore, art history and wildlife.
Deirdre is from Gorey, Co. Wexford; she divides her time between Ireland and Seville where she runs Two Birds Gallery & Studio. Her work has been exhibited in Ireland and internationally including in Museo ABC, Rizoma Galería, Madrid, Draíocht, Blanchardstown, Temple Bar Gallery, Dublin, Tinahely Courthouse, and Gorey Library. Her work was selected by NCAD, Business to Arts, and Dublin Airport to be exhibited as part of the Creative Journeys Billboard project in Dublin Airport.
Her work is part of the following collections: AWAS (Ansett Worldwide Aviation Services) Bank of Ireland, Beacon Hospital, Cill Rialaig Arts Centre, Fingal County Council, Tyrone Guthrie Centre.
