O’Donoghue on show

Shankill Arts Festival


Jennifer O’Donoghue can claim to be the only Irish arts graduate to work with Lesage in Paris, the famous embroidery house (now owned by Chanel) whose exquisite craftsmanship adorns haute couture creations. A fine arts graduate from NCAD, O’Donoghue interned with Lulu Guinness and Liberty of London during her student days and most recently worked with Oscar de la Renta in New York. Though she continues her course studies in Paris, she combines this with side-saddle riding at home in Ireland. O’Donoghue will be exhibiting her artwork this weekend at the Shankill Castle Arts Festival in Paulstown, Kilkenny with sculpture, painting and pure embroidery. The festival runs until August 17th. shankhillcastle.com
