Niamh Birch is currently living in her hometown of North Devon, England after graduating with a 1:1 in Contemporary Arts Practice BA(Hons) at Bath Spa University in 2019.

Niamh’s work begins with words, thoughts, stories or objects. Overhearing fragments of chatter in the streets, an ‘ordinary’ object, a song lyric and the thoughts we encapsulate ourselves in are continuously becoming part of my mantra. Textures and bold colours are considered within domestic spaces which are filled with returning imagery – wine bottles, cat silhouettes or umbrellas – making the work both precious, yet expressive.

Always exciting to see young, new, emerging talent, and Niamh’s work is bursting with energy and tropical vibes - paintings to lift the spirits
