ISeult Gavin

creative + facilitator

Iseult (Izzy) is from Dublin and moved to Waterford in 2020. Izzy originally trained and worked in the Beauty Industry. In 2015, Izzy had to take a step back from her work as a Beautician and Makeup Artist to care for her family and her own mental health. During this time, she discovered the power of Holistic Healing Modalities like Meditation, Mindfulness, Art, and Watercolor Painting, which helped her navigate through life’s challenges.

Since 2015, Izzy has been making art and set up a successful Etsy Shop in 2020. She has collaborated with local businesses in Waterford and Dublin, selling cards and art prints. Some of the businesses Izzy has worked with include Isabels Places in Dungarvan, Sunfleck in Dungarvan, Old Soul Vintage in Tramore, Skinful Affairs in Dublin, and One Dame Lane in Greystones. In 2022, Izzy was approached by JNB (American Online Charity set up by singer/songwriter Jewel) to teach monthly Watercolor Classes on Zoom, which received a wonderful response from participants.
