A Fair Free Christmas- Announcement

This year I will not be taking part in any Christmas fairs. As a creative that has my own line of products, for the past several years the whole Christmas season from September-January has been consumed by preparing for and going to fairs. And this year I’m happy to say that I’m going to do something different and spend the time with Emilia instead- my 1 year old who is changing every single day. I don’t want to miss a thing.

I am still busy in the studio and will be taking orders and shipping as normal until I close shop for Christmas. In the next couple of weeks I will also have a new product and a luxury Christmas card which I’m very excited about!

Some art prints such as ‘The Baltimore Beacon’ and ‘Ireland in Bloom’ are very low in stock and as they are limited edition when they are gone, they’re gone! Cork Lace tea towels are out of stock and Ireland in Bloom tea towels are almost out of stock but you can find some in West Cork Crafts in Skibbereen. The sale in my webshop will continue until the end of this week.

The best range of my products is available at West Cork Crafts and Nano Nagle Place in Cork has a large selection of my products as well. I will keep my stockist list on my website updated.

The Baltimore Beacon Print- LOW STOCK

It's a bitter-sweet feeling when a limited edition of a print sells out. Although it is always wonderful to know that people like my work enough to buy it, and amazing to know that it is out there in homes across the world, when an edition sells out it feels like the end of a chapter for me.

People often comment that I should make all my prints open edition but I like the fact that they are limited and exclusive- a high quality fine art print that will retain it's value. When an edition sells out it makes room for new work which is always exciting and pushes me creatively.

Incase anyone is planning on buying a print of 'The Baltimore Beacon', there are now only 10 left in the edition. The print is available from my website www.petaltopetal.com and West Cork Crafts in Skibbereen.

New work- 'Lacecap Hydrangea'

Hydrangea(MedRes).jpg

My latest design is finally ready and I am excited about this one. 'Lacecap Hydrangea' is a particularly special flower to me. It reminds me of my Grandma and we have it planted in our garden to admire when it breaks out into its beautiful bloom. My husband and I had it in our wedding flowers and even had the flowers made out of icing as beautiful finishing touches on our wedding favours (which were luxurious chocolate ganache cakes with beautiful lace and flower icing) to remember my Grandma on our special day.

This flower is just so timeless and delicate and the colours are incredible and come in so many lovely combinations. You can see it all over West Cork in the Summer sunshine and it brings me happiness whenever I see it. This image is available as a greeting card which is already stocked at West Cork Crafts (Skibbereen, West Cork) and Chou's Cottage (Clonmel, Co. Tipperary) and will  also be available as a print soon. 💮🌸🌿

Back from a lovely weekend at The Glucksman fair and it was such a lot of fun! Thank you to everyone for your kind words and support and for the staff for yet again creating the best Christmas fair in Cork City (yes, Christmas is just around the corner...despite the blue skies yesterday!) It was really great to meet some of you and to hear stories of where and why my work has ended up in all corners of the world.

'Lace Fern' is inspired by the ferns that we see around West Cork and Ireland. 'The image is a fern illustrated in lace with tiny Irish wildflowers hidden throughout. Available in my webshop here
