Well; this is a blast from the past. Yes! It's really me. A different hair style and a couple of years younger. After all if I am going to tell you about the stories and inspiration behind my paintings what better way to start than to share this video with you. It's really about where it all started ....

Yes; I really have enjoyed working towards my latest exhibition 'SUMMER FISHING'. All inspired by days out on the boat with my husband  Brendan. He actually caught a bass and has been expounding on the story for ever since. Bet you'll overhear him at the launch .......hands this far apart .......telling all about the one that didn't get away!

You can view the work from the exhibition here.

To kickstart the Summer I took part in the Art in Action festival in Farmleigh over the May Bank Holiday weekend. This was an opportunity to meet artists and see us at work. It was a great day out for all the family. Exhibitions, workshops for adults & children, food, craft & farmers markets & much, much more. Be sure to watch out for it next year. I'll definitely take part again!

And Still He Sings....
