Originally from Surrey Andrew Pain moved with his wife Vida to her native Lisacul, Co. Roscommon in 1997. Together they started Black Hen Designs in late 2010 with the idea of designing and creating a beautiful range of original glass paintings.
Andrews passion for nature and all things rural inspire his designs and these are brought to life through the use of vivid colour and exaggerated form. The ideas for many of the drawings can often come from chance encounters and as there’s usually a story behind each one, a playful and uplifting title is given to these quirky contemporary designs.
'It’s my love of nature that inspires each and every piece'
Working from their studio, each piece is individually hand painted and beautifully framed ready to be enjoyed.
