Moylan Brunnock

 

Moylan Brunnock is a 20 year old singer-songwriter from Dungarvan in Waterford, living in Dublin, studying to become a primary school teacher.

Starting out as a Seanós singer there is a traditional Irish quality to her voice, but she covers a wide variety of genres and songs in gigs with the use of her guitar and loop pedal.

Moylan enjoyed a lengthy run on Irelands 'The Voice' and got all the swivel chairs to turn for her on her blind audition. She chose Brezzie as her mentor and reached the semi final.

Karen Hickey

 

Karen Hickey:

I have been drawing since I was a small child. People as subjects have always interested me the most.

In 2006 I began taking courses in Life Drawing and Portrait Drawing, where I learned how to approach these topics in a more refined way. The artists who tutored these courses included Nina Patterson, Tom Been and Judith Ostermayer.

Over these last ten years I have participated in many Art workshops, all of them very freeing and fun but also very informative on how to approach art in many different ways.

In September 2016 I began a course in Drawing and Painting the Figure at the National College of Art and Design. An academic course including the study of the Great Masters of the Arts. 

My personal approach is driven by a mixture of instinct and a subject matter that I find interesting, which so far is people, their expressions, mood and movement.  My aim is always to create pieces which are alive, colourful, fun and expressive.

I am inspired by many artists, including Amedeo Mondigliani, Kees van Dongen, Klimt, Egon Schiele and Mary Swanzy
