Going Home 2019

From a series of mixed media illustrations exploring ideas of Home both as a physical place and as a feeling independent of geographic co-ordinates.

Home Less 2019

Tamlyn is a South African illustrator and visual artist based in Limerick, Ireland. Her practice is inspired by observing and documenting human behaviour: interactions with each other and our environment, especially in urban spaces where there are so many stories intersecting and unfolding simultaneously.

I specialise in digital illustration, animated gifs. and site specific art for public spaces. I’m interested in creating visual stories and sequential narratives that are brought to life through the viewers engagement with augmented reality/interactive apps.
