Maeve Coulter trained as a printmaker at the Limerick School of Art and Design, then studied Art Education at LSAD and Art Textiles at Crawford College of Art and Design. She works with textiles, printmaking, and cyanotype photography, transforming paper and cloth by printing, dyeing, rusting, layering, pleating, and stitching. She alludes to the notion of making, un-making and re-making, to themes of family, memory and loss, perception, and distortion. Her approach to making is haptic, the materials and techniques she uses often reflect the ideas she explores. She has won several awards for her work including the RDS Taylor Art Award for Print and curators’ awards at exhibitions in the New York Centre for Photographic Art and Glór Arts Centre in Ennis. Maeve is originally from Cavan and now lives in rural north County Kilkenny.
