Miriam Hurley

Miriam completed courses in screen-printing and photopolymer printmaking before becoming an Open Access Member at Cork Printmakers. In 2016 she became a Full Member.

Miriam works with her own photographic images taken from a large range of subjects, in colour and black & white. She develops her photographic imagery through photopolymer printmaking on toyobo print plates and riston film on zinc and wood plates. She also explores her images in a variety of screen-printing techniques, such as four colour separation, true grain and mono screen- printing.
