Ann Duggan is contemporary textile artist and fashion designer based in Wexford.
Training in Grafton Academy of Dress Design in Dublin, Ann worked with Michel Amber, and on relocating home to Wexford established her own client base for bespoke work. Her passion towards hand work in designing a garment, naturally led to creating textile pieces, incorporating classic hand techniques but looking to create something contemporary.
Ann has worked and collaborated as a volunteer on the Ros Tapestry since 2006, currently a major exhibition in New Ross, Co. Wexford. Her work has also been exhibited with fellow Wexford artists, in The Pigyard Gallery from 2010 & 2015. Textile works have also been exhibited at The Blue Egg Gallery in Wexford, 2020 Gallery in Cork, and The Market Place in Armagh.
Ann was a finalist in the National RDS Craft Exhibition 2011, winning 2nd prize in Multi-Media Textile Category. In November 2011, Ann had exhibited her textile work in the Crafts Council of Irelands, ‘Seascapes’ Exhibition at the annual Knitting & Stitching Show held in the RDS Dublin.
