Niamh Clancy was born in Ireland, in 1975. She graduated from the National College of Art and Design, Dublin in 1997 with a joint Honours degree in Fine Art and History of Art, and in 2002 she achieved a Masters Degree in Printmaking from the Royal College of Art, London. Today, her prints are exhibited with Eames Fine Art, throughout the UK and shown in Europe and America.
There is a dreamlike quality to Clancy's imagery, much of which is inspired by a classic fairy tale or in response to a contemporary news article, and always informed by her personal reseach and observation.
Clancy has had solo exhibitions in Ireland at The Original Print Gallery, Dublin, and the Basement Gallery, Dundalk, Co. Louth. She has also participated in several group shows, including at the London Original Print Fair, the Royal Colleage of Art Secret Postcard Exhibition, Drawing, at Eames Fine Art, BITE 212 at the Mall Galleries, and at the 6th International Printing Biennial, Douro, Portugal. Clancy's work is currently on display in the Royal Academy as part of Etching: The Infernal Method, an exhibition curated by Norman Ackroyd RA for the RA Art Sales programme.
