I print my linocuts and woodcuts on Irish linen and create hand stitched collages inspired by the countryside where I live along with gorgeous landscapes and gardens I’ve seen on my travels in Britain and Ireland.

My Practice

I work with lino cut, wood cut and lithography, inspired by the countryside where I live along with gorgeous gardens and beautiful landscapes I see on my travels in Ireland and Britain.
I am based in County Down, Northern Ireland.

Tools & Materials

I work from my own studio using my Victorian my cast iron to print my linocuts on vintage Irish linen. My equipment includes bradawls and chisels made by my grandfather along with modern high quality Swiss lino cutting tools. I have sewing baskets, silver thimbles and vintage linen which have been handed down to me from my relatives. I also have a 200 year old lithography press which I use for stone lithography, an old traditional print making technique.

Spring Fling Activity

I will demonstrate how I make my linen collages from beginning to end with work in progress at every stage. My sewing baskets, cutting tools, lino blocks and linen will set the scene and show visitors my working practice.
