Honor Hales - Artist

Honor Hales was born in Dublin in 1971. She studied Visual Communications through design in Waterford Regional Technical College from 1989 to 1993. The medim Honor uses at present is lead on glass with handmade papers and textiles, but she works with golf leaf, industrial resins, stained glass and paint from time to time. Honor’s work centres on natural forms with a leaning towards plant and sea life. A wide range of cultural influences are also present with the adaptation of Celtic, Egyptian and Native American symbolism. There is a strong focus on the use of colour in all of Honor’s work. This interest began with a thesis in colour Psychology and has continued through every piece created. With a belief that art work should allow the viewer to interact with the individual piece in some way, there is always one different texture to be felt on the surface of the glass.
