I would like to go beyond creating a vast range of affordable art prints and branch out to community workshops and create how to demo videos

Donate money to the workshop I'm based in, for better equipment and paper. 

I am a printmaker from the North Coast of Ireland. I studied Fine Art Printmaking at university and I am now a member of Derry Print Workshop. I work mainly in two disciplines of printmaking, linoleum and serigraphy (silk screen printing). I also work with risograph printing, large scale digital printing, photography and printing onto commercial items such as post cards and tote bags. 

My practice is influenced heavily by my own childhood memories of growing up exploring the North Coast and various parts of Ireland with my family, and now the countries I have travelled. I also draw a lot of animals – when I was young I thought I’d grow up to be a vet or zookeeper, but it turns out I’m better at drawing animals than working with them. 

My work consists of bold black drawings with bursts of colour in the background. 

I would like my small business to go beyond creating a vast range of affordable original art prints and branch out to community workshops and creating ‘how to’ demos on YouTube. I will use the money I raise to buy equipment I would need for workshops and to advance my own artist practice.
