‘Royal Woodlands’ depicted through Irish textiles at Leitrim Design House

One of the beautiful artworks now on exhibit

ARTWALL exhibitions have resumed once again at The Leitrim Design House. We are delighted to welcome back customers to view a new exhibition of landscapes by Textile Artist Eileen McNulty. This exhibition titled Royal Woodlands is on view from July 31 and runs until September 30 .
Royal Woodlands is based on the ‘Royal County’ of Meath, where the artist Eileen McNulty lives and works. She creates one off contemporary pieces of textile art that are inspired by the beauty of the Irish Landscape.
Eileen describes her process as follows: “Irish tweeds, linens and cottons combine to create a textural quality to my work. My thread has now become my drawing tool which I use on my sewing machine and my fabrics have become my artist palette.
“My fairy trees echo tales of the wee folk and where they lived, tales of wishing trees all over Ireland. Fleeting glances of the countryside and the rolling hills where I live give constant inspiration. When I start a piece of work I have an idea in my head of what it will look like. As I begin to sew the fabric and stitch take on a life of its own. It evolves and directs me to where it wants to go. I am under the command of the piece from then on.”
Eileen has showcased her unique work in numerous exhibitions including the RDS and The Knitting and Stitching exhibitions.
Her work is held in many private collections around Ireland and most recently bought by the Bill Clinton Museum Little Rock Arkansas.
The Leitrim Design House is delighted to showcase this talented artist's work. Beautifully finished, these pieces sit comfortably within the exquisite collection of high quality Irish craft, art and design on display.
