Salty Sea Dog

This little scribble is my homage to our sea-loving retriever, Blyton. This guy is never happier than when he’s galloping around the beach and swimming in the sea, with the possible exception of the joy when he hears the toaster pop. I honestly think he believes he is a seal. One day I will write…

Christmas Delivery

Just over two weeks to go! Really? How did that happen? Éadach parcels are proving popular as Christmas gifts which is wonderful, I love the idea of these little pieces of wearable art sitting under the tree. However, there are still (ahem, mostly male) people getting in touch, undecided about which print to go for…

Small Business Saturday & the Age of the Freelancer

If you wander into a certain kind of (wifi-providing) coffee shop in the middle of the day chances are, as well as the bearded barista and complex coffee menu, a sea of Macs will greet you. You’re as likely to find a beard behind those as you are behind the counter tbh. Ladies and gentlemen,…

Christmas Gifts

Éadach oversized silk scarves are proving to be very popular Christmas presents, which I’m so excited about! I love the thought of people opening their gifts on Christmas morning and loving their scarves, wearing them out for a walk after lunch, for drinks on Boxing day, maybe fashioning them into a top or kimono wrap…

Mermaids

A mermaid found a swimming lad, Picked him up for her own, Pressed her body to his body, Laughed; and plunging down Forgot in cruel happiness That even lovers drown.     WB Yeats  It’s possibly becoming quite apparent (especially for anyone that follows me on Twitter) that I have something of a Yeats obsession….

Illustrations

I’m quite obsessed with drawing, I honestly think I have a 3b addiction, and although much of the illustration work I do is commercial work I do like to work on my own little personal scribbles when I have time. To compliment the aesthetic, inspiration and ethos of my Éadach silks I’ve worked on a…

Limited Edition Silk Scarves

Éadach scarves are 130cm x 130 cm silk twill with a hand rolled edge. The scarves are deliberately large to create a very versatile, luxurious garment- they can be worn as a shawl, sarong, twisted into a top or a turban. They even make fabulous wall hangings. These pieces add absolute luxury to everyday- being…

Banshee: Storm

When I was little I often stayed with my grandparents in Dublin, and for years they schooled me in Irish myth and legend, and the folklore of this country. While my grandfather stuck to the more traditional, well known stories- the Children of Lir, the Salmon of Knowledge, my Granny would (and still does) tell…

Maeve Roe Silk Print

‘Betrothed to one man but in love with another, she was held captive by her father in a turret of the castle perched high on the craggy rocks. On a wild and stormy night her beloved came to rescue her, and they escaped through the Mermaid’s cave under the castle. The sea was cruel and…

Pirate Queen: Sunset

I started mulling over this print when we were road tripping around the west coast last summer and happened upon the remains of the Cara na Mara on the beach at Bunbeg. I love ruins, wrecks and derelict buildings- I wonder who lived and worked there and what kind of lives revolved around these now decaying structures.
