"The man who built the wall"

"The man who built the wall" is part of a triptych I've made for "Down the Road" an exhibition of textiles by Cork Textiles Network at St. Fin Barre's Cathedral in Cork which opens today and runs until 17th June. For more information see
This piece is hand-painted onto calico and free-machine quilted. It is part of my on-going obsession with the beautiful dry-stone walls around my home in County Galway.


  1. This is a great piece and I would love to see the other two parts of the triptych. And thanks for your kind words on my blog. As a matter of fact, we did meet--at the fair at the Museum of Country Life in May. I have tried to e-mail you using the address on the card you gave me but I don't think it's going through.

  2. Thanks for your comments Madalene. I must post the other 2 pics when I get a chance.
