Bríd Kivneen

Bríd is based in the West of Ireland, where the wild rugged landscapes of County Mayo influence and inspire her hand painted silk scarves and silk paintings. Silk is one of the most precious fibers in the world, a beautiful natural material whose sheen and fluidity make the colours and images of nature come alive.

This rich, soft fabric is the medium she uses to interpret shape, colour and form using large, bold images. 

Growing unusual flowering plants is sometimes used as a starting point for her work, she has a keen interest in their mythologies and healing properties.

Each hand painted silk item is a unique creation by Bríd.
