This is a comprehensive catalogue of the Waterford, Kerry and Travelling Collections of the artist. Her works from 1938 at the age of two and a half to 2006 are beautifully illustrated and arranged in chronological order. Her work covers time spent in Wales, Ireland, England as well as journeys to the South Seas and Tuscany. In 2005 she donated a major collection of her paintings to the State. Many of the pages of illustrations have a personal comment or explanation by the artist herself. Examples include: ‘John Mulcahy, editor of Hibernia, commissioned a cover for International Woman’s Year 1975. I did two sketches, followed by the lino cut he used.’ , ‘The Yellow Man decides to visit Siena. He washes and cuts his nails.’, ‘Life around Rossbeigh, Killarney and the Lakes was gouged out of scrap battleship lino bought in a coal-yard in Dublin. The high heel marks dictated where to cut.’, ‘Another ‘waiting’ for something to happen still life.’, ‘Designs for Alan Simpson and Carolyn Swift of the tiny Pike Theatre in Herbert Lane.’, ‘Pat read aloud to me then, as he still does to this day.’ etc.
