TILLY MORRIS

Managing Director

Tilly Morris graduated from IADT with a First Class Honours in Art. She won the 2020 Emerging Artist award from Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council.

Since graduating, Tilly has taught art at creative summer camps all across Ireland. She spent a year abroad studying at the University of the Arts, Helsinki, where she specialised in sculpture and received training in a variety of interesting art techniques.

Tilly has an expansive interest in art across all mediums. Outside of her passion for sculpture, she grew up painting alongside her grandfather Desmond Morris, the zoologist and surrealist artist. 

After two years in the making, she is thrilled to finally offer DIVA as a hub for the creative community. 

ANNIE LAING

Creative Director

Annie graduated from IADT in 2020 with a BA First Class Honours in Art. 


She specialises in watercolour painting, and has worked in a multitude of different mediums including acrylic, screen print, performance, and photography.


Annie has been teaching art and music for the last six years in various locations all around Dublin. She is looking forward to assisting young artists in celebrating their creativity, and helping them to develop and enhance their own practises.
