Pippa Sweeney MA MCSD

In 2010 Pippa took a year out from family life and graduated with an MA in illustration from University College Falmouth. It was during her studies that she stumbled upon needle felting and went on to use this technique in her award winning children’s book ‘Words Get Knotted’. In 2012 she opened The Beach House Gallery in Dungarvan, County Waterford, where as well as showcasing well over 100 Irish artists and craftworkers, she creates, exhibits and sells her needle felted images.

'My work is varied and my choice of medium depends on the project undertaken. I enjoy 'playing' with materials and being lead by their innate qualities, alternating between controlled, highly researched work and more playful, spontaneous projects. This approach not only provides wonderful surprises but keeps my practice balanced and exciting.'
