Irish Artist Rachel Egan:
At 21 I attended Larkin Community College, in North Strand. A skill based Art course in Sculpture, Ceramics, Drawing and Painting. To further my studies i went to The National College Of Art and Design, and specialized in Painting.
My work is autobiographical, sharing personal reflections through drawing, diary, poetry and writings, text, photography, video, and installation.
The combination of artistic skill, with conceptual art forms along side a holistic influence has become intrinsically linked for me as a person and a creative.
Teaching Art in the community has been invaluable to me, it helped me to engage with other projects outside of the self. Feeling the essential importance of not just being an artist, but to be human together, sharing creativity as a form of communication, equality, understanding and compassion.
