Eve Hickey

Eve Hickey is a visual artist and educator living and working in North County Dublin. Having trained initially in glass, ceramics and wood, she gained a greater understanding of materials and their possibilities. In 2002 she went on to complete a degree in Fine Art in IADT Dun Laoghaire working primarily in painting, drawing and sculpture. Her career to date has allowed her to continue to be hands-on, exploratory and investigative. After graduating in 2006 she began working as a decorative artist with a bespoke furniture and finishes company. In 2012 she moved over to an Irish interiors and furniture company as the lead product designer and continued in this role for seven years. ​

In 2020 having taken a broader view of her career and its direction she decided to return to NCAD to complete a Professional Master of Education (Art and Design). Throughout her career she has continued to pursue her personal art practice, working primarily in paint and non-traditional materials, wood and plasters. Her work varies in style from finely detailed drawings to large scale, mixed media paintings. The pieces echo her love of roadscapes, landscapes, deep connection to nature and the idea of displacement and home.
