Martina Harrigan 


My name is Martina Harrigan I am a local artist from Newbridge.

The work I create is inspired by my love of nature and all the different types of textures, forms, and shapes that are seen along our beaches, countryside, and in our Oceans.

My work is focused on fibre manipulation and the different types of textures that can be achieved by applying heat, stitch, and embellishment, which will achieve my final design. I also incorporate a lot of recycled plastics and fabric remnants and any other item I can recycle and turn into something beautiful.  

I love contemporary offbeat textile art; therefore, I work on achieving something that combines these ideas in a cleverly skilled way

As an artist, I also love to photograph unusual shapes and forms, or details of rust, Flowers, Leaves, Tree Bark, Weathered Walls, and Cobwebs, anything that will inspire me to transform natures natural beauty into unique pieces of Textile Art.                

My work has been exhibited with the Newbridge PopupArt Group many times.

I have received commissions from clients as far away as Japan, America, and France
