I have been to fairyland and back .......and I am going there again soon soon (I cannot wait)

please click to see the details :)

I am fortunate enough to have a good relationship with the great folk that run a local adult mental health unit .Over the last few years I have worked there occasionally as an artist with the fine people who attend these services for many varied reasons .
Feeling a little lost myself lately ,I felt drawn back to this place and decided to volunteer these last few weeks.
We have been making beautiful hats and fairy dolls for the upcoming craft fair.
Yesterday I created a set for our dolls to exist within until they are snaffled up to maybe grace someones tree or live in a new home .
I was channelling the amazing to me Victorian Fairy Painter
John Anster Fitzgerald and will be developing this work in a new project next year :)
All I know is that every single stitch is a major achievement and that I feel privledged to be able to work alongside so many lovely people.

newsflash ****
I will have three of my artists books on sale /exhibition at the dublin art book fair and magazine archive this weekend !!!!

film stills etc ......

there were some lovely arts and crafts era tiles at the carboot sale a few days ago.

I have been reviewing my work from a while ago .....I made so much when I was at college that I never explored or understood but knew there was something in some of the images so I kept them , I am starting to work out what or where to find that something.
I posted some more stills on my flickr

Its getting wintery.
Tommorow I fly over the sea to England to see my folks there. I am looking forward to the break , the first one on my own in many years.
I am going to two very exciting shows ,which I will let you know about soon soon .
Grayson Perry at the British Museum
Judith Scott at the amazing amazing of everything
