Sorca a landscape artist from Howth completed her residency over May/June. Her current work is a direct and emotional response to the landscape close to where she lives in Howth, a place with many memories.
During her time at Graphic Studio Sorca created a limited edition of prints, the artists proof will enter the Fingal County Council Arts Collection.
On completion of the residency Sorca said that ‘I have two prints that I am very happy with (and I have already sold a few from each edition), I have learnt LOADS of new techniques, and I have a much deeper understanding of the unbelievable patience, resilience and professionalism of Master Printer Niamh Flanagan. I am in awe of her and her colleagues at the Graphic Studio. There is a lovely supportive team atmosphere in the building.’
