She always had a passion for working traditionaly and creating her work by hand. Niamh grew up in Inis Mór, Aran islands an island off the coast of Ireland. Craft is so predominant to the tradition of the island, its culture and the landscape and this has had an impact on her passion and interest in traditional and highly detailed craft and designs.

Quilling by Niamh Faherty

Archangel Michael Quilling by Niamh Faherty Archangel Michael is a Framed Quilling piece that Niamh created. Her inspiration for creating this Quilling piece of Archangel Michael came from her mother. When her grandmother was very ill, Niamh's mother was in their car and the badge for Archangel Michael fell from the mirror into her pocket as her grandmother passed away and this gave them all comfort knowing that she was being protected. The aim is to create an initial impact as the viewer observes the piece, from this it draws the viewers eye closer to see the details involved.
