John Nasky born and raised in Pittsburgh PA, USA. His grandmother imigrated to the U.S. from Listowel County Kerry and was a Stack before marrying her husband who was Russian, and thus the name Nasky. His Mother's father and mother imigrated to the U.S. from County Meath, and their name was Kitrick.
John studied art at The Art Institute in Pittsburgh, and went on
to become a commercial artist for 35 years. Celtic art was a hobby
at that time, and his love of the art came from studying Jim
Fitzpatrick, Courtney Davis, and the Book of Kells, a copy of
which he received as a Christmas gift. His original art was first
noticed by an Irish Dance Teacher, Ann Richens who commisioned
him to do her logo and school dance costume. From there he went
on to become a well known designer of traditional Irish Dance
Costumes and Logos. He now devotes all of his time to original
art pieces that are done by hand with no help from the computer.
