Mary Fleming from Lanesborough, studied Graphic Design in Athlone Institute of Technology (NCEA Design Communications Certificate, 1991) and Central Saint Martins, London (BA Degree, 1994). She has designed for high profile companies in Ireland, the UK and Germany and established her own design studio in Lanesborough, in 2004.
Aside from design she continues to pursue her life-long interest in studying, drawing and adapting animal forms, particularly horses and cattle, and conveying them with a candor that often missed. She is influenced by contemporary art and commercial illustration. An interest in the environment and wildlife has led to a commission, by the National Parks and Wildlife Services, to illustrate local plant, animal and bird species in watercolour.
