kinds of art and crafts
the years since leaving collage in 1992 I have tried my hand at various
different things. This page is designed to be a kind of portfolio
or virtual gallery.
Under the headings below you can find a selection of about 30 woodblock
prints, which I used to print onto t-shirts and sell as a buisness.
I still produce them on paper.
I have a large collection of paintings
and rubbings from various stone age and early Christian sites.
When I get time, I colour them with ink. They tend to be quite large,
being based on rubbings. Some of the stones fron the Boyne Valley
are nearly 4 meters long.
Medicine Wheels - I would have to
confess - are some of the most fun I have ever had in the art world.
During a mad period after leaving college, myself and Padraig Conway
from Galway began to make our own stone circles and megalithic designs.
I have an ongoing love affair with woodcarving, and have some pictures
of my as yet unfinished totem pole
here. It is based on the Battle of Moytura, the central story of Irish
shows some work myself and Padraig did at the Irish festival in 1998.
is a project created by Mick O'Brien. He took a rubbing of K67 at
Newgrange and made a life sized replica of it in wood, with inlaid
designs. A very beautiful piece of work.
