Fiona Harrington uses Fine Art techniques to depict Irish landscapes through handmade lace.
A fine artist, Fiona has replaced paint with a needle and thread. Inspired by the Irish landscape, she combines traditional Kenmare needlepoint with Carrickmacross Lace creating her own unique style of artwork.
Each piece is meticulously worked by hand with thread as fine as a human hair. This thread is delicately intertwined to create a network of patterns using the single buttonhole stitch.
Through her innovative approach to lace, the heritage and history of lacemaking in Ireland is reinvigorated and preserved.
