I make hand stitched collages of my linocuts and wood cuts printed on Irish linen. My imagery is inspired by the countryside and gardens of Britain and Ireland. The individual printed pieces are a mixture of small precise representational vignettes and panels of textures and patterns. The linen I use is locally sourced here in Northern Ireland or has been inherited from family members.
Each collage is unique.
I use my Victorian cast iron press to create my linen prints combining contemporary designs with classic fabric.
I also design and publish Algan Arts greetings cards.
