an old cardboard box on the wall outside my studio ..think it had figs in it ...I love her confidence :)
my favourite sheets
a very old doll and a drawing from probs three years ago that I still love

......well of course I will be sailing merrily into spring (soon soon) ....just like dear wendy in peter pan.
I am really enjoying being on flickr and it is such a great way of seeing other artists work sort of like your own (which makes me feel a lot better about what I make)
A big hello to the artists who have taken the time to contact me and mark my very own drawings as their favourites ! oh my gosh that feels so brill.
I am really looking forward to being in the upcoming tinderbox group show in Dublin march 28th...very exciting.

Hey Janey...
really like the progression of 'theres no such place as far away' like the before alot, and the after. they are so different, they look like two completely different pieces.

oh and love the sheets...wish we could hang clothes out on the line down here, but its been a bit blah outside:)

handing in thesis tomorro. yea!

hey there Jane! Finally getting back to you...

groundhog day is a pinnacle day here (Feb. 2)! If it's cloudy when a groundhog emerges from its burrow, it signifies that winter will soon end. If on the other hand, it's sunny, winter will continue for six more weeks. I guess we have six more weeks this year:(
