About this experience
About Barbara Bennett
Barbara Bennett graduated with a BA in Visual Communication from the National College of Art & Design in 2017. She has since worked as a Graphic Designer with various businesses & retail stores, creating brands, packaging and products across Ireland and abroad.
In August 2019 Barbara moved to Vancouver, Canada in search of more design experience but due to the Pandemic, her time there was cut short. Having lost her job abroad she decided to return home to Ireland in March 2020.
Given all the free time over the Lockdown, Barbara was able to immerse herself back into painting. She became creative by practicing on a variety of different mediums. By combining her passion for vibrant prints and love for footwear Barbara was able to set up a shoe customisation service where she hand paints her original designs onto leather shoes.
Barbara launched her first collection in June 2020 and with the power of social media has been able to create so many exciting commissions since.
Barbara believes that protecting the environment is just as important as bringing beauty into it. This is why she only uses water-based and non-toxic paints so that they do not harm the environment. Her eccentric prints are designed to excite those with a passion to be bold, vibrant and fearless.
