BA (Hons) in Visual Art Graduate, Deborah Reidy's graduate exhibition was a series of self-portraits portraying the seven deadly sins

"To have my work hanging next to Ian Cumberland's work and in the same room as other artists I admire, like Colin Davidson and the Royal Hibernian Academy (RHA) members, is an absolute honour. It inspires me to keep going and work even harder at it.

My time at WIT helped me to develop the discipline to work on art every day. I enjoyed first year especially where I spent a lot of time on the basics of drawing and colour theory. It is a great course for trying out different disciplines and developing and following through with concepts for projects.

My graduate exhibition in WIT was a series of self-portraits portraying the seven deadly sins.

WIT gave me a good foundation to start my art career."
