2007 – Carmel Benson


Carmel Benson was born in Wexford. In 1972 she graduated from University College Dublin with a B.A. and H. Dip. Ed. In 1982 she graduated from Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art & Design and Technology, majoring in painting and printmaking. She joined Graphic Studio Dublin where she later became a Director of the Board. She was a lecturer in print at Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design & Technology from 1985 – 1999 before moving to County Wicklow where she now lives and works as a full time artist.

Combining figurative and abstract elements, her work is drawn from themes of childhood and nature. Through a strong use of colour, light and the simplification of perspective, it seeks to explore the integration or isolation of the individual in space/time. Her work is included in many public and private collections including: the Irish Contemporary Art Society, Bank of Ireland, AIB and the Arts Councils of Ireland.
