Welcome to The Happy Artist

Art is for Everyone



The Happy Artist is a creative arts project based in Ballybunion, Co. Kerry, Ireland. The project aims to encourage people of all ages to explore their creative potential through visual arts, music, film, animation and literature. A number of films and animations are available to watch on our Vimeo and You Tube Channels.

Where possible, The Happy Artist tries to develop sustainable projects by working in partnership with other agencies such as The Arts Council of Ireland, Kerry County Council Arts Office, North and East Kerry Development, Kerry Film Festival and Listowel Writer’s Week. The Happy Artist facilitates programmes with all ages from toddlers to people of the third age. Check out our news or projects pages to get a sense of the work we do.

The Happy Artist is co-ordinated by award winning artist and film maker Lisa Fingleton. Lisa has over twenty years experience working with community, youth and collaborative projects. The project collaborates with a number of other artists and film makers in the area.
