The Product: Irish coastal wall art print Dunes At Murlough Bay
Irish coastal wall art print Dunes At Murlough Bay was taken from an original collage depicting the fragile, 6000-year-old sand dune system on one of Ireland’s very first Nature Reserves ‘Murlough’ designated in 1967. An area of outstanding natural beauty, the landscape is well known amongst walkers and birdwatchers and is located at the edge of Dundrum Bay and the Mourne Mountains. The original artwork is a collage created by layering up, painting and then removing multiple papers, materials and colours. The print is based on this original artwork from the artist’s ‘Land’e’ Scapes’ series.
Emerging artist Emma Tweedie works between rural Northern Ireland, where she grew up and her south-west London studio. Emma creates semi-autobiographical and abstracted works that channel her responses to nature and its calming effects. The finished results feel contemporary and dynamic but firmly rooted in and inspired by the natural landscapes, seascapes and townscapes of her native homeland. Her colour palettes also reflect those she finds in nature such as lichen green, moody blues and turf browns.
Original artworks are frequently created from mixed media with a sustainable focus. Emma prioritises water-based and non-toxic ingredients. She is also interested in textiles and is a keen ‘up-cycler’. Hence, she tries to use secondhand materials wherever possible in her paintings and collages. These might include old newspaper, packaging materials, vintage fabrics such as Irish linen and even used coffee cups. She is also inventive with her ‘artist’s toolkit’, employing an eclectic variety of materials and techniques to achieve the desired result. Such items as pine cones, bracken, sticks, homemade brushes, textiles and clay paint number amongst the materials she has used to bring her original artworks to life.

These Irish coastal wall art prints are sold unframed. We’d suggest a slim, bespoke, box frame with a wide, white card mount to allow the print to take centre stage. Ensure the print stands out further by teaming white walls with a white frame, perhaps with subtly visible wood grain for texture, so the frame and surround effectively ‘disappear’. Alternatively, a pale wooden frame would compliment the warmer ochre tones in the print. Framed prints, especially those with a generous white mount, will always ‘leap out’ from darker backdrops to greater dramatic effect.
The Dunes At Murlough Bay Giclée fine art print measures 50cm x 50cm and comes carefully rolled in a cardboard tube, ready for framing.
