Clodagh O’Halloran

Clodagh has been an avid collector of linocut prints for many years and back in 2007 took up printmaking herself, studying the techniques at the Gloucestershire Printmaking Cooperative and the New Brewery Arts Centre in Cirencester. She takes her inspiration from nature and the countryside, particularly around her native Cotswolds.

Having spent the best part of 30 years at a desk job has fuelled Clodagh’s passion for all things inky and creative, and early retirement from the corporate world in 2018 has allowed her to properly pursue her ambition. She loves the whole process of creating a design and seeing it emerge from the lino right through to the final pull of the print. Clodagh particularly loves the carving of the lino block; finding it a very calming and meditative part of the whole creative process.

Clodagh also admits to being a voracious doodler and is currently working on a range of cards using freehand repeating doodles.

She is a member of the Supercraft Cruises team, teaching on selected cruise lines.
