Mentor Profile: Caoilfionn Murphy O’Hanlon
Growing upon the slopes of Sliabh Gullion, textile artist Caoilfionn Murphy O’Hanlon has long ben beguiled by the ever changing hues, rugged beauty, legends and lore of her place and her people. Drawing on imbued memories and nostalgic inheritances, her quirky textile pieces are made from hand dyed wools, silks and found objects reflecting her Irish roots and shared landscapes. “I want my work to be the footprint I leave behind, my vestige nod to ancestors who walked these hills before me; I have lived this landscape and I have felt it”
