Adrienne Geoghegan

I am a storyteller; I am an illustrator, a picture book maker, a collagist, a tutor, and an artist.

As my work evolves, I crave to ‘tell’ these stories in as many ways as is possible. Random ephemera that referred to another lifetime, time worn news restored, revealed, billboards, announcements, maps, diagrams and dress patterns, they all engross me. They inspire new visions, new insights. I paint, I draw, I construct, I assemble. I build up physical layers, representing fragments of truth and historic curiosities. I compose commentaries on human nature by examining societal roles and incongruity. My drawings and objects are perceived in many ways: symbolically, suggestively, and decoratively. I love to play with compositions to create, for example, unease, serenity, obscurity or clarity. With each new placement or fragment, I invite a multitude of interpretations. Through my digging and unearthing, I find yet more mystery. It is this mystery that keeps me rooting for more.

I was educated at Kingston University, London, where I studied illustration. I graduated in 1993 with a first class honours degree. My continuing professional development: In 2014 I was invited by Golden Artist Colors, New York to receive training as part of their Golden Artist Educator Program in London- and I have received certification by them to be a Golden Artist Educator. I designed and teach on Visual Art Boot Camps and I am a part time lecturer at The Dublin Institute of Technology, School of Art, Design and Printing.
