Hey! My name is Niamh - It's pronounced Neev, it's Irish and it means radiant and bright.
I am Vartan's newest employee, working on production and general assistance, while learning and loving the process.
I was born in Dublin, Ireland in August 1991.
(Jump forward 23 years and 10 months)
June 2015 – I graduated college with a BA in Visual Communication Design from IADT, Dublin.
August 2015 – I moved to San Francisco on an adventure.
October 2015 – My adventure now includes Vartan! How exciting!
Working with my hands and being creative is my main interest. The opportunity to work with Carly on the prepping, dying of fabrics and sewing is amazing to me. Having spent most of my previous design experience in graphic design, it's a really nice progression to move into textile design. I'm always looking for new and exciting projects to get into and learn from. Creative expression and happy accidents that occur during the dying and printing process makes working with fabrics a truly unique experience.
Other things that I like include colorful illustrations, RnB, and swimming in the sea. Traveling is also a huge part of my life. I feel so blessed to be able to call San Francisco my home for the next year!
