Portrait of Trini Kenny

Although I trained as a painter I have spent the last two decades exploring the medium of batiks as a means of expression.

My themes vary from still life to landscapes. My recent work, I call my Lockdown Series was inspired by my nighttime walks around my home town of Kilkenny, noticing streets, homes, gardens and small corners of the town from different viewpoints.

I am passionate about batik and the batik process.

I like to combine large areas of flat colour with areas of pattern and texture using dip dyes, paint-on dyes, traditional stamping, detailed tjanting, copper stamps, discharge dyeing, natural cracking, forced cracking and etching.

The possibilities are endless and I’m only scratching the surface.
