Fán studied Fine Art at IADT and always had a strong pull towards print and design. In 2010, she started printing again (giving gifts to friends and family), and from there began selling at local markets with no real plan, a just ‘see how it goes’ attitude. From 2012 onwards Fán began selling her prints to shops and galleries throughout Ireland and the UK, and in 2015 began process of putting the designs onto other products, releasing small batches of bone china mugs, tea-towels, cards and totes.
Having sold her artwork for almost seven years, with various high points (and a few low points, just to balance things out), and as these things have a habit of doing, Fán has recently gone back to basics, having scaled back her output and pared back her designs. She started block-printing on fabric and producing prints and designs in tiny batches from her tiny studio in Dún Laoghaire.
At Dublin Flea Christmas Market she will have her lino prints, alongside china mugs, block-printed bags, tea-towels, washbags, and decorations. (Oh, and the name, Fawn is the phonetic spelling of Fán’s name.)
