About

Inspired by Nature - Connected to Place

Hello and thank you for taking the time to visit my online shop and gallery.

About Me

Based in County Down by the shores of Strangford Lough, I create mixed-media original works on Irish Linen. The products I produce include original works of art, art prints, cards and homeware that connect with nature, landscape and heritage.

I am lucky to live in a rural setting with my husband, 2 young children and 2 cats. Having lived away in Scotland and the South of Ireland, I have returned to County Down and the locale of my youth to settle and raise my family. This landscape, with its unspoilt shorelines, ancient landmarks, quiet laneways and rolling drumlins is one that has always inspired me. 

My Inspiration and Process

I am inspired by the landscape and flora of the local area, the changing seasons, folklore and Celtic heritage. My work combines printed and painted elements, with each piece being unique and instilled with a sense of place. I add hand embellishment to my works and explore layers of printmaking, mark making and pattern in my compositions. I bring together both real and imagined elements and experiences to produce truly original pieces of art.

I often offer insights into my process in my Newsletter. You can subscribe here to receive updates, which also include exclusive offers and releases for subscribers.

I also facilitate creative workshops in person and online. You can find out more about my workshops and teaching practice here.
