About me, Rochelle Lucey
Rochelle is an artist living and working in her hometown of Killorglin, County Kerry on the south-west coast of Ireland. She graduated in 2012 with BA Honours in Fine Art Painting from Limerick School of Art and Design.
She has been a part of numerous group shows over the years, including exhibitions at K-FEST. Her first solo show was held in the Limerick Printmakers Gallery in 2013 entitled “No Diesel” which was a series of oil paintings on canvas contemplating the ideas around the Irish recession and the detrimental effects it had on the country.
Her second solo show was titled ‘The Establishment’, which took place in The Chapel on the Hill, Killorglin. Since then she has been actively involved with K-FEST Arts Festival as Art Director.
She is currently Artist in Residence at a number of Schools in Kerry.
Rochelle was the recipient of the inaugural Tom Fox Exhibition Award 2012, a bursary kindly provided by the Fox family to commemorate the Limerick-based painter Tom Fox’s untimely passing in September 2010. A prolific artist, he exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally. This award was created in his name by the Fox family to encourage a graduate painter in the early stages of their career by having a prominent solo exhibition in a well-established gallery. Limerick Printmakers Studio and Gallery are delighted to be in a position to facilitate this solo exhibition
