‘I intended to kill him’ by Shauna Mc Gowan as part of the Toilet Lightbox Show

This body of work was created as a response to the execution of Ruth Ellis, the last female to be executed in the UK. The work reflects the candy-coated nature of society, with great horrors often being masked in a façade of glamour.


I am a multi-disciplined artist. Areas of interest include screen-printing, illustration, textile design, installation art, and poetry.

A magpie in a past life I am drawn to metallic surfaces and shiny vibrant things.

I love music, art, sleeping…cream buns and tea…camouflage, hot water bottles, wave watching and acetate.

Studying Fashion and Textile design, specializing in screen-printing has enabled me to illuminate diverse surfaces with my strong, graphic drawing skills.

My work has been exhibited throughout Ireland, China and Finland.

Imagery has been featured in Wonderland Magazine Denmark, Drawing Eire-Contemporary Irish Drawing, AU Magazine, State Magazine and Digital Textile Magazine amongst others.

This piece can be seen in the Basement Project Space toilet from the 14th May till the 13th of June
