Trisha McNally is an Illustrator based in Belfast. A former graduate with a BDes in Fashion and Textiles design from the University of Ulster, Belfast. She is heavily Influenced by a love of paper, collage, pattern & texture
Trisha creates artwork that is often figurative based, exploring themes of femininity, identity and the female gaze within the context of personal narrative and storytelling. Although the female form features heavily in her work, illustration has given her other varied influences of photography, film & popular culture the ability to shine through.
Trisha combines digital elements with traditional processes, fusing the organic qualities of found and deconstructed materials with digital techniques, creating work that is intricate in detail and rich in vibrancy. Her images are provoking and striking, with a visual depth and dark undertones that are both appealing to the sensibilities and enticingly intricate to the eye.
She has exhibited nationally and internationally. Previous exhibitions include “Presenting the Top100”, Jealous Gallery, London: A selected exhibition of 100 works from worldwide submissions. “Edition”, Bodhi Gallery, London, A screen-printing exhibition with 50 up-and-coming artists from an open call of over 400 submissions.
Undertaking mostly fashion and some editorial work. Previous Clients include: FashionMistress.com – IF Magazine – Modo Magazine – Creative Boom-Navigator Blue – Bandwidthsessions.com – LeftoversZine – Supersweet.org-Arts Ekta. She is always looking for new, fresh & exciting ways to display my work.
Her personal practice has taken a backseat to her passion for community art over the last few years but she is currently developing a new body of work.
