Niall Hennessy

Born at Cashel, Tipperary, Ireland in 1941, his mother's maiden name was O'Neill. He married at Bromley, Kent in 1973, Elizabeth A. Wells. Now a retired art teacher, having taught art in schools for 35 years. His main medium is print and in particular screenprint with his subject matter from the striking visual effects created by the light in East Anglia and the water meadows around Sudbury are an ever-changing resource for trying to capture the nuances of shadow and colour. His work features in private collections including the House of Lords. Most of his printmaking is made in the Gainsborough's House Print Workshop in Sudbury, working with small edition print runs, normally 5 or 10. As Niall Hennessy he exhibited from 88 Queens Road, Sudbury, Suffolk at the 'Visions of Sudbury' at St Peter's Church in 2009 a screen print 'The Old Sudbury Boot Shop' and in 2013 a screen print 'Hollow Way near Borley' .
