Working from her studio in rural North Yorkshire, etching mainly on copper plate, Moira is inspired by her connection to the land. Her prints often take the form of intimate insights into the larger landscape. Work is based on close observation and it is important for her to work from life, to observe in depth in order to develop an intimate relationship with the subject matter. Recent projects explore her heritage in relation to the landscape. For the past 6 summers, trips to Southern Ireland have inspired her print making and she is currently Artist in Residence at Plumpton Rocks, working on drawings, paintings and a folio of etchings.
