Original Artwork inspired by The Wild Atlantic Way
My work is hugely influenced by my love of the sea and surrounding countryside. I grew up and live on the south coast of Ireland near the entrance to Cork harbour . The Wild Atlantic Way stretches from County Donegal and ends just a few miles from my house. There are many special elements that make this coast so unique. It has wonderful beaches and dramatic cliffs. There are also many magical fishing villages including my home village of Crosshaven. Living here we are exposed to the elements of the raging Atlantic. We also benefit however from a mild climate due to the presence of the Gulf Stream. I love exploring this wild scenery with its spectacular cliff walks and lush vegetation. I also find it very inspiring. Each one of my original Wild Atlantic Way art pieces is therefor inspired by the everchanging Irish land and seascapes.
Unique Irish Batik Wall Art
I work with the process of batik by applying melted wax to 100 % cotton. When I dip the cloth the wax resists the dye . I repeat this process for each colour. Finally, I remove the wax using an iron and newsprint paper. The recycled cotton cloth returns to its original texture once it dries . Given the unpredictability of where and how the wax cracks when submerged in the dye there is always an element of surprise with batik. This is what makes each piece of my Wild Atlantic Way inspired art so unique. As I am also very conscious of the importance of sustainability I try to source natural materials as much as possible. My goal is to create a collage of one of a kind eco-friendly artwork. For more info on my sustainable mixed media collection click here
