Artists Bio : Deirdre Gillespie

Deirdre Gillespie is a graduate of the Crawford College of Art and Design in Cork. Her distinctive style in oil, acrylic and chalk pastel, are large, vibrant and skillfully executed. Deirdre's subject matter is deeply personal but has a resonance for us all and we find ourselves drawn into her world and finding an expression of our own therein.

In addition to her Painting, Deirdre has produced limited edition giclee print's and cards of her work exclusively for Buckley Fine Art.


As a member of the Cork Craft Guild, Deirdre Gillespie creates uniquely original stained glass lighting for walls, ceilings and free standing lamps. Each piece is carefully created using marbled and stained glass, some incorporating Valentia Slate from Deirdre's native Kerry. A magnificent range is available, they are a 'must have' for those with a keen eye and an appreciation for the craft. For that 'special something' you can have a piece commissioned to suit your interior. Featured in several Interior Design publications, Deirdre has completed commissions for Café's and Bistro's in Belgium and Ireland, as well numerous private and public collections.


Deirdre Gillespie's Craft work compliments her Painting giving us a highly creative individual with an outstandingly passionate love of all aspects of her art.
