Fine Art Etching & Carborundum Prints

The act of making is a fundamental, indeed primary, human activity. Artistic endeavour as part of that activity functions to interpret, illuminate and transform the world we live in. I work with steel and aluminium plates to create highly textured fine art intaglio prints through the medium of etching and carborundum.

This way of creating an image is a process of construction. I like to think of it as “building” the plate. In this sense there is a sculptural aspect to my work. At other times the textured carborundum and etching approximates the characteristics of brush strokes in a painting.

As an Irish printmaker and artist, living in Thomastown, Kilkenny I am influenced by a rich culture of arts, crafts music and design; all of this underpinned by the stunning natural heritage of the landscape and of course, being Ireland, a wealth of history. Looking further afield the influences of the modern world are not far away, and so these also play an important role in my work.
