About Us

The Wild Swans at Coole linocut

My designs are drawn from impressions of wildlife, landscapes and seascapes of County Donegal along Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way.

I admire the strong lines and textures that can be achieved with linocut printmaking. 

To make a linocut an image is carved out of a lino block with tools called gougers.
Then ink is rolled onto the block with a brayer. Paper is laid on top of the block and burnished by hand or passed through a press to give an even impression.
All linocuts are hand printed on 100% acid free block printing paper.

Limited edition prints

Linocut tools

A limited edition means there are only a certain number of prints made. Each print is signed, titled and numbered by the artist.

Some variation of colour and tone is to be expected as this is a hand applied process (not a digital print) so each print is an original piece of art.


I am happy to discuss ideas for commissions so please call or email me at contact details below.

Our environment

I care about our shared environment so source materials I use for my products from suppliers whose policy it is to use paper, card and wood that is either recycled or from sustainably managed forests. 


The mount board that surrounds your print is a soft white tone and slightly textured with a clean, crisp, bevel cut. Each mount is pH neutral which minimises the effect of atmospheric pollutants.

Frames and backing board

Low Tide linocut

All frames are wood and come with glass. The board behind the frame is ph neutral which provides protection for your print when framed or mounted.
