Born in Dublin, Jean Bardon studied at Dun Laoghaire College of Art and Design between 1970 and 1974. She then spent a period living and working in Amsterdam. It was during this time that she developed an interest in printmaking. She became a member of Graphic Studio Dublin in 1990 and since then has exhibited nationally and internationally. This work was part of ‘Urbis Felicitas’ (city of happiness), an exhibition of fine art prints by more than 40 artists who take inspiration from Mountjoy Square in Dublin and its immediate environs.
