ABOUT THE ARTIST
Inspiration for my work comes from my garden and the natural beauty of my surroundings, living and working in the heartland of the Boyne Valley. The seasonal colour changes of flowers and foliage produces an ever changing landscape, rich in heritage, mythology and sacred symbolism. I love manipulating silk organza fabrics with wool fibres and adding various embroidery stitch and embellishments to create a new piece of art, sometimes realistic, sometimes abstract.
My Fibre Art was selected in the Top 50 New Products at ‘Showcase’ in 2012 and 2013 -
Working from my studio in Ardcath, Co. Meath, you are welcome to view my home gallery by appointment.
I work both in literal and abstract but I find abstract allows me the freedom to push boundaries in design, technique and materials I use.
Each piece varies in size as very often the artwork takes on a life of its own and the finished piece is far removed from the initial concept.
Colour and light plays a very important role in my creations. Living and working in the countryside surrounded by nature provides a prism of colours which are constantly changing between sunlight and shade from season to season.
I embellish luxurious soft merino wool and silk, dyed to pick up the required colours and shades needed for each individual art work piece and add embellishments to suit the required finish.
