I have always loved art and craft and have been making linocuts since I was in primary school!
My lithographs depict standing stones and fairy thorn trees, distant islands and traditional farm cottages.
I have my own workshop and my Victorian cast iron press which I use to print my linocuts on Irish linen. I also make hand printed, hand stitched linen collages.
I design my table linen and tea towels using little linocut motifs inspired by plants in my garden.
