Mary Plunkett

In 2011 she completed an MA in Visual Communication in NCAD through letterpress and combined it with other print techniques to produce a limited edition book 'Night Prayer'. The book went on to win Book and Print of the Year at the Irish Print Awards and she was awarded the IDI Graduate Award in the Masters Category. Following this Mary Plunkett was awarded the Leonardo da Vinci grant and spent three months with Hand & Eye Letterpress in London. Upon returning to Dublin she began teaching the summer and evening courses in Distillers Press in NCAD. Later that year she joined Distillers Press for a year as Designer in Residence. This was a great opportunity to work with Sean Sills who has run the press for 30 years. She assisted in the day to day running of the press, worked with the Visual Communication students and collaborated with visitors to the press. In 2012 Mary Plunkett joined Graphic Studio Dublin and has taken part in the group shows Sketchbooks, Strumpet City and the exhibition A Natural Selection. In October she finished printing a limited edition book 'Eveline' - one of the short stories from James Joyce's Dubliners and launched it at the Oxford Fine Press Book Fair in early November.

Mary Plunkett is currently collaborating with Fighting Words and the National Print Museum to work with ten young people to produce a book of their poetry. The group have completed their poems in Fighting Words and are joining her at the Print Museum every week to set their words in metal type and cut an accompanying illustration in lino. The finished book should be ready for a launch in December, just in time for Christmas presents!

In January 2014 she will undertake a residency in Belfast Print Workshop to spend some time screenprinting and producing a small body of work for an exhibition there in March.
