Josephine Hardiman was born March 10, 1953 in Cushendall Co. Antrim, a seaside town nestling at the base of the Antrim Hills.

As a child her family moved South to County Kildare and she spent her formative years in the Liffey Valley town of Newbridge.

Having completed her teacher training Josephine taught in St Conleth's Primary School, Newbridge from 1972 to 1989 at which time she took the decision to concentrate fully on her Art and more especially her particular interest Calligraphy.

She built a studio onto her home in Naas, Co. Kildare for her own use and to assist with her teaching.
At her studio Josephine has held many Art & Craft Workshops for Children and Adults and has held summer in-career Development course for Primary School teachers in Calligraphy drawing and painting.

She is constantly sought out by interested painters groups and individuals to host courses in Calligraphy, Painting and Drawing techniques.

"I love to draw and paint the flora and fauna, the landscapes in all seasons, historical and archaeological sites and buildings of Ireland, and to visually enhance the written word of the poets and writers combining my skills in creating something original and unique for individual commissions and personalised gifts"
