About the Artist

Elinor Wiltshire 1918–2017

Elinor Wiltshire founded the Green Studios on St Stephen's Green with her husband Reginald in 1951. Following her husband’s death in 1968, Elinor sold the studio and moved to London where she worked as a botanist and researcher at the Natural History Museum. Wiltshire later donated her collection of photographic negatives and prints to the National Library of Ireland. In the 1980s, Wiltshire created over 50 needlepoint pieces based on life in London. She donated 12 of these to IMMA in 2013.
