I work from a studio in the Garden of Ireland with a farm cat and sheepdog for company.  In  the spring we are joined by lambs, falcons and swallows.  The light and views are fantastic.  It is a special place to work.

Linking our ancient Irish heritage with contemporary design is a strong feature of my creative process. I research my themes with site visits and meeting with  archaeologists and local guides.  I have been very lucky to have access to some amazing ancient sites.   I fully believe that  ‘you cant feel it, if you haven’t been there….’    The slow process of sketching in pencil and charcoal, then layering the colours echoes the marks made by our ancestors on stone –  powerful connection with the past.

I hope you enjoy the art, video and blog page.

Prints are available of original artworks, see my Shop, or just drop me a line if you are interested in an original piece or commission.  Delivery can easily be arranged.  Studio visits or a workshop on megalithic symbols can also be booked by emailing  erika@erikatyner.com
