Davin Butler is the youngest sibling. He started sculpting in his teens and continued to do so part-time throughout college where he studied web development, he then realised he wanted to put all his focus into making sculptures. He has travelled around Canada, where he worked in an art gallery exhibiting art from the First Nations community. He was inspired by the art there, especially the many tribal face masks. He began creating masks of his own when he returned to Ireland. He draws inspiration and techniques from the rest of the family and focuses mostly on nature, the ocean, and people. His ‘Heart on the line’ and ‘Hold on to your Heart’ sculptures express the range of emotions that come with a long distance relationship. He likes tribal and mythological art, and tries to blend this into the medium of copper sculpture.

Davin has also started experimenting with different patinas and enamel. This is indicative of his eagerness to experiment and learn. As time goes on, he defines his style more and more. His work has been displayed in galleries across Ireland, the Burren Nature Sanctuary, and the 2 Michelin Star restaurant; Aimsir, in Kildare.
