Thank God that I am finally busy working away, clearing space for beauty to be seen in my studio and here are the two projects that are on my mind right now.
Firstly I will exhibit in february at the  The Limerick International Artist Publications Salon, they have a facebook info page and I will post updates here and on my facebook page.
I am exhibiting some new handmade books that I have made on my own and this one above  that I made with musician Natalia Beylis.
Natalia has a very interesting sound landscape project that she is doing every day , you can hear it
Secondly I am making some special film/drawings for a musician associate who approached me last year.(more to follow on that one !!!)

Dear Jane,

Do keep your blog, please.
Just today I showed it to a fellow artist who works with embroidery and other stuff, Bia Santos. She was thrilled to see your work. Your blog is a window.
