Tricia McCarthy graduated with a first class honours fine art degree in ‘04 and worked as an artist with the Galway University Hospitals Arts Trust.
Tricia sadly passed away on the 8th feb 2010, after her brave struggle with cancer. Tricia was part of the MART launch exhibition in 2007 and took part in Galway arts festival exhibition in 2008. Her co-laborations with Vertigo Smyth produced the memorable work’s ‘Surreal Estate’ and ‘If Books were Rooks’. Tricia was an innovative and playful artist whose positive outlook on her life and work is an inspiration. Even in the weeks leading up to her passing she managed to submit an application for an artists bursary from the Arts Council and sell out all her pieces at a show in white room gallery in December! She is a huge loss the visual artists of ireland and to the all that had the pleasure of knowing her.
