Colourful Memories

Alumna Kathleen O'Hagan (2016) has been immersed in her art since graduating from Northside, as an artist in residence, recent first-time published artist and now on the eve of her inaugural art exhibition in the Centre for Innovation and Creativity.

Featuring her detailed and articulate illustration style, Colourful Memories is a children's book that was released on Tuesday, 17 July. Kathleen reflects on the book, the process and her involvement:

"Completed during my graduating year at Northside, my illustrations in Colourful Memories is a culmination not only of the beautiful story of Opa and Charlie (Written by Catherine Bauer; Published by Wombat Books) but of my time at Northside: the continuous support of my fellow students, teachers and the Northside community as a whole.

Indeed, it was during my spares, lunch breaks and art classes that the majority of the book was completed. I always had a friend leaning over my shoulder, or a helpful art teacher ready to give me their advice and encouragement. I cannot wait to share the book with you all!"

Colourful Memories is available now through publisher Wombat Books.
