West Ireland-based fine artist Nicola Henley specialises in large scale, original textile wallhangings for commission and exhibition. Henley captures the energy of the dramatic seas and changing light of the Atlantic coast, as well as the sense of freedom of the birds in flight.
"The built landscape has recently become increasingly influential to my work. I find I am seeking out significant man-made structures standing as historical witnesses to past events where people have lived and worked, or studying the process of decay, where the disused structures have been coloured and changed by the course of time. Flaking paint on an old door can reveal countless under-layers of colours painted by previous hands." - Sue Spooner
