About the Artist
Frankie Creith grew up in the countryside near the small Northern Irish town of Bushmills, famous for housing the world’s oldest licensed distillery, its ‘Black Bush’ whiskey and its location adjacent to the UNESCO World Heritage site of the ‘Giant’s Causeway’.
She now lives just a stone’s throw away in the seaside peninsula town of Portrush on the Causeway Coast, where her artwork and art gifts including handcrafted jewellery, is showcased in her own art gallery on Portrush’s Main Street.
An art school graduate of Ulster University Belfast, Frankie is best known for her ‘mixed-media textile’ artwork which incorporates fabrics, papers, paint, inks, wax, resin and all manner of media through collage, fusing, layering, and ﬁnally embellishing with both free machine and hand stitch.
Since graduating she has continued to develop her creative practice, whilst working as an ‘Artist in Residence’ for the Education Boards and Arts Council of Northern Ireland for over 20 years and has taken on numerous art commissions including Irish landscapes, landmarks and equine portraits.
Frankie’s work has been published, televised, exhibited internationally and is held in private and public art collections worldwide including the permanent Textile Collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
She loves to share and encourage others in the development of their own creativity, teaching and facilitating a range of creative workshops and private art lessons in her Portrush art studio.
