This first collection under her own name is designed with lino-blocks and hand silkscreened in England on linen sourced in Ireland. The collection initially inspired by Arts & Crafts design features the signature print ‘Battle Great Wood’ complimented with contemporary geometric patterns. The designs are intentionally uneven and retain the texture of lino prints.
