Ailbhe Barrett

Ailbhe is a native of Granagh, on the Limerick-Cork border. She was home-schooled until the age of eighteen, when she took up painting full-time.

Ailbhe studied print-making at Limerick Printmakers and Graphic Studio Dublin, exploring her interest in the relationships between etching, drawing and painting, especially the vital role of print-making in the history of art, and its growing importance of her own body of work.

Ailbhe’s first solo show was held in Graphic Studio Gallery in 2017, and in 2018 she won the ESB Keating Medal and Award for Outstanding Work of Art at the RHA.
