Delighted to be heading back to Terryglass Arts Festival this year. For those of you who haven't been before it is a totally fabulous arts festival in a tiny, picturesque village on the shore of Lough Derg. It punches well above it's weight. A true gem in a beautiful setting. This year it is on from 16th - 20th August and I will be running an all day mosaic workshop at it. Link to the brochure below:
Terryglass Arts Festival
The mural in the village of Mountshannon is finished and officially unveiled! It was commissioned as part of this years Mountshannon Arts Festival and responded to the theme 'From Home'.
At last! My part of the sun dial in Scariff town is finished. Lots of beautiful vibrant tiles to reflect the sunlight. It looks well... :D
Well the months of meetings and plans have finally all come together. Our new art trail for East Clare - Art in Studios - is live and ready to go. The launch takes place beside the Community Garden in Scariff, in the lovely purpose built building of the Co-op.
Looking forward to a sociable evening putting East Clare arts on the map!

Recently finished this mosaic piece, 'Cosmos'. I was using smalti pieces for the first time. They are the uneven brick shaped pieces, all glass. It's like playing with jewels... Well, I did put a crystal in the piece for good measure!
A little bit of something to brighten up your February...

Am recently back from a residency at the wonderful Cill Rialaig artist village, near Ballinskelligs, County Kerry. What a place to switch off from the usual pulls and distractions of an everyday hectic life. 8 cottages perched on the side of a hill, the cliffs falling down into the sea. Perfect. There is a nearby Arts Centre, a great little hub of activity and a striking building in it's own right. If you are ever heading that way it's worth calling in, just a few miles off the Ring of Kerry between Caherciveen and Waterville.
