Metal Art Prints- Perfect Christmas Gifts!


My new design 'Blue Butterfly' has been printed on metal and is ready to hang in your home. This metal print can even be hung in damp areas such as bathrooms and in rain protected outdoor areas (so it doesn't get it's wings wet!)

The print measures 105mm x 148mm (A6) and there are only 2 of these available here.
It will also be available in a larger size at a Cork based Art Gallery this Christmas, but more to come on that soon :)


'Blue Butterfly' is also available as a limited edition fine art print which you can view here

Another design, 'Let's Grow Together' is available as a metal print and at 10 x 10cm it makes a great little stocking filler. There are just 3 of these available and you can find them here


My 'Lace Doily' design is also available as a metal print in both small (10 x 10cm) and large (20 x 20cm) sizes.


There is just one of the small prints left which is available here


and the large prints are available here

All of these prints are ready to hang and can even be hung in damp areas such as bathrooms and in rain protected outdoor areas. These little prints make great presents and are are ideal to post as gifts to friends and family abroad.

The Coffee Art Project Exhibition, Paris



Are any of my readers Paris based? If so, one of my Pink Lace Doily Ltd Edt screen prints is part of this fantastic exhibition. It opens today and runs until November 22nd. Opening hours are 10am - 18pm. The link to the event is here.

Over 300 artists worldwide-have participated in this great exhibition which opens today! The Coffee Art Project aims to showcase the creativity and talents of emerging artists, while engaging a deep spirit of community among those who share a passion for great coffee and coffee culture. The ultimate objective of this program, however, is to raise valuable funds for and awareness of Project Waterfall, which supports clean water and sanitation initiatives.


'Lace Doily is my contemporary take on the vintage crochet doily. This is an item that holds such nostalgia, and historically many were used as coasters for coffee cups. Doilies were created using a method called 'Openwork' which allows the surface of the underlying object to show through. I created an illustration using this method, which is the method I illustrate in, and chose a modern colour to create a contemporary feel. This created a juxtaposition between the two eras. The illustration is delicate and fragile so the technique of screen printing captures the delicacy of the vintage crochet doily.'

New Prints!



These Blue Butterfly fine art prints are A4 in size and come with an A3 mount, backing board and wrapped in a plastic envelope so are ready to frame and great as a gift for Christmas. I love the quality of the printing and paper, you can see the detail and texture in these photos. Giclee is a high quality inkjet print created with professional grade machines and fine materials. Printed with pigment inks on archival paper, it is pronounced "zhee-clay" and is a noun deriving from the French verb gicler, which means "to spray". A giclee is the apex of digital printmaking.









These prints are a Limited Edition of 100 and come numbered, titled and signed. They are €45 including p&p within Europe. I will be listing them on Etsy soon, but you can also purchase them directly from me- just contact me at petaltopetal@gmail.com.
