Every year I print an edition for the Blackstack Studio annual Box Set which is sold as a fundraiser to help with the running costs of our artist led print studio. We do 2 sets, available to buy online and we ship worldwide, check out http://www.blackstackstudio.com
This time I’ve made a small etching based on a drawing I did years ago at the camel fair in Pushkar in Rajasthan. In the evening the camel buyers and sellers set up camp in the desert at the edge of the town and construct temporary wooden structures; ladders and platforms to sleep on.
Box 1 has four prints, selling for 75 euro and Box 2 has five prints, selling for 90 euro. Paper size 19 x 19 cm and packaged in a handmade box. I’m in Box 1 this year and proud to be included with fellow printmakers Helen Robbins, Louise Allen and Nadia Cullinane, see below.
Blackstack Studio’s annual group show opens this Saturday as part of AKA Fringe Festival Kilkenny. I’ll be showing some new etchings.

Three of my rust prints have been selected for the Blackstack Studio print show in St. Luke’s Hospital Kilkenny.
Blackstack Studio members were invited by St. Lukes General Hospital to create a series of prints for display and this exhibition was made possible thanks to the support of Edelle Nolan, Arts & Health Coordinator, St. Luke’s General Hospital, Lynda Phelan, Studio Manager, Blackstack Studio, Kilkenny County Council & Kilkenny Arts Office.
At the close of the exhibition, Blackstack Studio will present all their prints to St. Luke’s Permanent Collection so that the work may be displayed throughout the hospital for the enjoyment of patients, staff and visitors.
