a spectacular week in more ways than one !

thanks katy the lovely artist and curator of blog pigeon curd

this print from the surrealist artist leonora fini hangs in the same beautiful restaraunt the pantry and corkscrew in westport co.mayo (run by the sweetest janice and dermott)..........that is home to a selection of my drawings and self published artists books !

loving these patterns at the moment.......
hoping these manifest a bit more this week !

a lovely woman from america called by my stall yesterday delighted to find some artisanal(as she put it) products to take home with her, first she bought one of my limited edition book a light meditation on cameos ....then a cute folk art kind of totem pole tea pot - cup- jug kind of object :)....and then she spied the spectacular coat and said it had to go back home with her . She was keen to support irish artists and really went out of her way to find hand made work ,I was pleased that she found me and loved what she found !
thanks cathy x
I make exactly what I feel like and would like to see , that which I miss from around me , same as in my drawings .....and somehow /somewhere others are seeing something they yearn for too.
I have to say I have never felt so connected to my work , my life, my friends and family ....at last I feel fully alive and true.
I simply cannot say all the amazing things that has happened this week , but I can feel them , thank you Patrick, Frank,Janice,Cathy, Michaela, Richael,Pat, my girls and Aidan in particular and also thank you to all my other dear friends who always stay close and true.
What a week !
