Karen Nolan

Wexford based Illustrator, always in search of a challenge. I like to draw shapes in ink, pencil or paint and doll them up on my trusty Mac. I have been known to dip my paintbrush in the wrong cup and spoil a perfectly good cup of tea. When I’m not pushing pixels round a screen or creating images I like to make stuff. Any stuff really – I’m not fussy.

Throughout the two decades I’ve spent working in the design industry I’ve illustrated for clients such as Trocaire, Environmental Protection Agency, Good Food Ireland and the Irish Agricultural Museum. I have an MA from National College of Art & Design (2005), a Silver award from Art Directors Club, Switzerland (1998), 2 runner-up images in Creative Quarterly 35 (summer 2014) and a well-earned gold star for “best picture” from Miss O’Brien in senior infants (1975).
