A dark cloud, hangs ominously over the 5000 year old Cairn T on Sliabh na Caillí (pronounced Sleeve na Kally). This cairn, associated with the ancient sovereignty Goddess, the Cailleach, lies on top the highest point in County Meath and is aligned to the Spring and Autumn Equinoxes. The energy on this hill is almost palpable.

Giclée is a neologism, ultimately derived from the French word gicleur, coined in 1991 by printmaker Jack Duganne for fine art digital prints made using inkjet printers. The name was originally applied to fine art prints created on a modified Iris printer in a process invented in the late 1980s. It has since been used widely to mean any fine-art printing, usually archival, printed by inkjet. It is often used by artists, galleries, and print shops for their high quality printing.

Our prints are printed on High Quality Satin Finish 260 gsm Giclée paper, and are provided to you ready for framing.

Art to me, is storytelling a means to visually capture the atmosphere and tell the tales behind our landscape or capture the essence of that person’s character.
