Weaving is a method of textile production in which two distinct sets of yarns or threads are interlaced at right angles to form a fabric or cloth. Similar methods are knitting, felting, and braiding or plaiting. The longitudinal threads are called the warp and the lateral threads are the weft or filling.

I am a fibre artist based in Roscommon, Ireland. My inspiration comes from the landscapes and surroundings of my country studio.

I work in a variety of materials, paint, collage, mixed media – but my primary thought process is in fibres. I like to collect materials such as wool, rope, cotton, and twist and weave them together to form individual, original works of art.
