Eithne Jordan was born in Dublin where she studied at Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design & Technology. She was awarded a DAAD scholarship to study at the Hochschule der Künste in West Berlin, where she subsequently lived for several years. Since 1990 she has worked between Languedoc in the south of France and Ireland. This has been interspersed with residencies - including a three month residency at the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris in 2005, and a six month residency at the Irish Museum of Modern Art in 2009 - and other work-travel experiences which have provided research material for her paintings. Her work in recent years focuses on the contemporary city, looking at places such as Paris, Rotterdam, Madrid, Vienna, and most recently Dublin. A member of Aosdana and the Royal Hibernian Acadmy, she is one of Ireland’s leading figurative painters.
Eithne Jordan has exhibited extensively in Ireland and in Europe. Her work is in major public and private collections in Ireland, Europe and the US.
