Deirdre McKenna is a conceptual artist based in Belfast, who has exhibited her work regionally and internationally over the last ten years.

Deirdre's work, 'Untitled Tragedy' is currently included in the collection of the Arts Council of Northern Ireland. ‘Untitled Tragedy’ is a miniature sculpture painting depicting her own funeral. The artist uses a tongue-in -cheek approach to create a strong sense of narrative within the work and the result is often a surreal visualisation of the world she inhabits.
