This box is situated at the entrance to Hermitage Road so as my design is based on plant imagery, I chose the title ‘Heritage’ to merge both concepts. Lucan has seen many changes over the years - where once were green fields, now stands sprawling housing estates. My image reflects back to the vegetation that grew here for many years - blossoms, wildflowers and weeds, natural vegetation that populated our fields and roadsides not so long ago. They remind us of the rural village that Lucan used to be.
I am a graphic designer originally from Galway but living in Lucan for the over 20 years. I have worked many years as both a freelance designer and an inhouse designer, but in recent times have been focusing on raising my family. I specialise in print design posters, computer illustrations, as well as photo retouching and Powerpoint illustrations. I am also very passionate about gardening and nature, and a lot of my work features elements of nature.
