Michael Heffernan Art Studio at Artisan Resource Center, Marietta GA.


Michael was born in Dublin, Ireland and graduated from the National College of Art and Design (NCAD) in 1974. He went on to study for a Master of Arts in Industrial Design at Birmingham Polytechnic, now the University of Central England. Following several years in industry as a senior product designer and manager, he was appointed to a lifetime tenure position at the Waterford Institute of Technology, Waterford, Ireland as Lecturer in visual Comminutions.

Since moving the United States in 1987, he spent most of his career in “C” level positions in IT, healthcare technology, biomedical and related industries. His design experience is extensive, spanning product design, packaging design, exhibition design, tableware and oven to tableware product design, domestic and household appliances in his early career, and later leading many innovative initiatives in multiple industries since moving to the USA.

In 2018, Michael began to devote his full-time and creative energy to painting, working from his studio at the Artisan Resource Center, Marietta, a northern suburb of Atlanta, Georgia.  He has completed many commissioned works and jury accepted in numerous art exhibits. His work has been sold throughout the United States.

Michael has exhibited in GA, FL, and NC. He is exhibiting at Sol Art Gallery, Dublin Ireland where he is represented exclusively. His work was exhibited at the Royal Dublin Society (RDS) Art Source Art Fair in December and in Art Source, Cork later in December 2019. His work was also shown at the Affordable Art Fair in London in March – April 2020.
