Clare Blackwell is a designer and teacher of Art & Design from Pallasgreen, County Limerick. Her creative interests include digital illustration, screenprinting and motion graphics. Influences and inspiration come from the world around her, travels to far flung places-and not so far, music, pop culture and nostalgia for the 1980’s and 90’s. Clare is a graduate of Limerick School of Art with a BA in Visual Communications and Dublin Institute of Technology with a PgDip in Digital Media.
‘Limerick 1’ is a response to local pride of place in a city I have worked and studied in over many years, from my first paying job to my years as an art student at the wonderful LSAD. I returned here recently to teach in the city after several years spent in other cities. Limerick has so much to offer and with a personality and culture that is warm and unique, a place to be celebrated with a bright future- something I have tried to reflect in this piece.
