My Design Processes

Riso Prints

Soy Ink - Riso printing uses soy ink made from soybean oil, which is more environmentally friendly than traditional petroleum-based inks. It’s renewable, bio-degradable and easy to remove from paper during the recycling process.
Paper - I use paper made from 100% post consumer waste and is FSC certified.
Packaging - My packaging sleeves are made from vegetable starch that are fully bio-degradable and compostable.

Screen Prints

I am a member of Derry Print Workshop and I use the fantastic printing facilities here to produce my screen prints. I use water based gouache paint on high-quality uncoated fine paper that is environmentally friendly and FSC credited.

Table Lamps

I collaborated with a local carpenter Joe Diver to design and create my 1950’s inspired table lamps. Joe handcrafts the lamp bases using birch plywood in his workshop in Ramelton. The lampshades are printed on 100% post consumer waste paper and is FSC certified.

Fabric Collages

My fabric collages are made by printing an image onto eco friendly bamboo cloth and collaging on top scraps of patterned material and 100% Irish linen. I recycle the patterned material from a local craftsperson, Bernadette Boyce.
