An out-of-the-blue honour

I got the most amazing email from the Teresian School a few weeks ago asking if I would like a student award for art named after me! I cannot say how honoured I feel.



Here's to 2021 - I think...

Here’s to a better year...well it just HAS to be better than the last one!

It’s a long time since I wrote a blog, I honestly have no excuse as I was doing very little.

In November I painted the studio in preparation for the studio open day, which went ahead with social distancing, masks, hand sanitizer and without print demonstrations. It was a success and it was great to have some positive feedback.



United Arts Club virtual show

Well it happened! The show 'opened' in the most unusal manner with all the invitees socially distanced and sitting down - without a drinks reception to console them. The following day, Dublin entered level three plus, and then the whole country went to level five.


Drawn to Print - a solo show in UAC

In such strange times – and as there won’t be an official opening reception – I thought I’d put a few words together about this show; “Drawn to print”.

First of all, let me fill you in a little about the background to all of this.


Putting the tin hat on things...

Well it was a long long lockdown and things were beginning to open up and get back to some sort of normality when things went horribly wrong. I had the paper ready for editioning a new print and was looking forward to being productive in the studio. On the garden front, Marcus and I were halfway through creating a new patio “room”. On Wednesday Marcus had gone to Kinsale to do some work and I thought I’d tidy up and plant a few things around the patio as a surprise for him when he returned.
