Almha McCartan is an Irish artist and designer based in London. She graduated with a BA in Textile Art & Artefact and Visual Culture from the National College of Art and Design, Dublin in 2017 and since then has worked in various areas of the textile industry whilst developing her own studio practice.
Almha’s work looks at the symbolic and emotive qualities of textiles and craft and how this relates to heritage, relationships and our environment. She has an intuitive and process driven approach to making and explores her conceptual thinking through colour, pattern and materiality. She is interested in the role textiles play in the intersection between art & design and function & decoration.
