Margaret’s ‘Journey Through Print’ has involved creating a very significant body of print work. Her journey has allowed her to explore and re-visit a number of universal and deeply personal themes.

She has and continues to create prints reflecting her deep engagement with the natural world, the sun, sea and sky and the landscapes of Donegal and Down.
