A native of the Boyne Valley, Áine designs and handweaves tapestry wall hangings for public and private clients. Introduced to tapestry weaving by artist, Liam O’Broin, in 1980, Áine spent time working and training with Regina Bartsh, Helena Ruuth, Alice Roden, Anne Marie Moroney, and Judith Hoad throughout the 80’s and 90’s.

Áine is a member of the Irish Guild of Weavers, Spinners, and Dyers since the mid 80s and has exhibited with them throughout the years.  Áine has produced some major works, including a commission from the Augustinian Community in Drogheda, celebrating 700 years in the town, and The Stephen’s Green Hotel, Dublin, part of the O’Callaghan Hotel Group.
