Karen Hickey - Waterford Walls


Karen has been primarily focused around portrait and life drawing, with a desire to capture emotion and energy in a face. Having studied portrait drawing, life drawing and painting over the last 12 years, she now exercises her own expressive style with a limitless passion that drives her to create in abundance.
Throughout 2017, her work was exhibited in a gallery in Dublin, in a solo show in Celbridge, a number of pieces were displayed at the Electric Picnic Festival and these (Picnic People) we shown again in the Leixlip Library in January 2018. A large number of her works have been installed in the new Google offices at Grand Canal Dock. She sells her art online through her Etsy store and via social media, with demand for her work growing steadily.
This is Karen’s first time painting at Waterford Walls festival. We look forward to seeing her vibrant artwork on a Waterford wall in August.
