Sasha Sykes

Sasha Sykes is an artist and creator of highly unusual hand-crafted contemporary furniture and functional artworks. Born in Dublin in 1976, Sykes studied architecture and worked as a retail designer before setting up her design company ‘farm21’ and establishing her solo artistic career. She has worked all over the world including London (1999 - 2003) and New York (2003 - 2006) and has now settled in her native Co. Carlow where she lives with her husband and three young children and works from a straw bale studio next door. Her work is particularly known for its use of acrylics and hand-cast resins, embedding found objects and collected organic materials, which tell stories of Ireland’s landscape and social history. Sykes has work in numerous private and public collections including the National Museum of Ireland.
