Welcome to Elemente
Elemente is a small art & creative computing school located in an idyllic and tranquil setting in rural County Laois.
All classes are taught in small groups and every student is encouraged to experiment and learn at their own pace.
Creative thinking and problem solving in a non-competitive, creative and supportive atmosphere is paramount at Elemente.
I hold a degree in Fine Art and an M.A. in Interactive Media Production. With a professional background in various creative fields from advertising agencies to higher education, my experience ranges from graphic arts and sculpture to print media production and web design.
I love making things and learning new skills myself – anything from crafting to carpentry – I’ll give it a go!
