What a nice start to St. Patrick's Weekend! I'm delighted to have my design featured on The Late Late Show last night where Ryan Tubridy gifted Mark Hamill from Star Wars the 'Ireland in Bloom' Pocket Square that I collaborated on with Mr. Jenks 🍀🇮🇪
I am delighted to feature in this double page spread in the Property & Interiors section of the Irish Examiner.
I'm excited to announce a collaboration with Cork based Badly Made Books. I love paper goods and notebooks in particular so it's great to see my designs on such beautiful examples which are completely handmade here in Cork. 'Flight Paths' is one of 3 designs that will be available very soon. As well as being stocked in shops around the country, the notebooks will also be available from my webshop.
A new colourway of the 'Irish Wildflowers' print is now available in one of my all time favourite colours, Petrol Blue http://www.petaltopetal.com/shop/irishwildflowerspetrolblue

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.
I was delighted with the feedback on my new logo and products and will be uploading new work to my online shop this week for anyone who couldn't make it to the fair.
I am looking forward to taking part in the annual Craft + Design fair at the Glucksman Gallery this weekend. I will be launching some new products and will have some special offers running for the weekend. I hope to see you there x
I am delighted to have some of my work featured in this article in today's Irish Examiner on the upcoming Glucksman Craft + Design fair which takes place next weekend!
I still have some passes so if you would like some just get in touch and I will pop them in the post to you x

My work is now available in Dunmore East, Waterford at Breakwater Gift Shop. What a beautiful display they have made in store- pretty with peonies! 🌸 🌿
A framed A3 giclee print of 'Lace Fern' in a limited edition of just 50 is part of the 'Flora' exhibition which runs at Uillinn for the whole Summer.
'Flora features artwork that explores the plant-life of Ireland. West Cork is renowned for both the beauty of its landscape and the wealth of artists residing here. The West Cork landscape is a common source of inspiration for artists, but for this exhibition we were seeking work that looked a little closer, to the plants and flowers that inhabit those landscapes and give them life.'
'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.
The print is also available from Doswell Gallery and the Glebe Gardens Shop.
A selection of art prints ('Lady of the Flowers' and 'Flight Paths'), ceramics, tea towels and greeting cards can be found at the Doswell Gallery shop. The new exhibition opens tonight and the gallery will be open from Thursdays to Sundays (and bank holiday Mondays) from 11:00 a.m to 5:30 p.m.
I am honoured to be featured in the 'Just a Card' Spring Shopping Guide. For anyone that isn't familiar with the campaign, it aims to encourage people to buy from Designer/Makers and Independent Galleries and Shops by reinforcing the message that all purchases, however small, even 'just a card' are so vital to the prosperity and survival of small businesses.
You can see the full gift guide here and see the poster below to find out more about the campaign.
I'm delighted to announce that a selection of Petal to Petal products including my new prints 'The Baltimore Beacon', 'Nest' and 'Flight Paths' are now in stock at the beautiful Glebe Gardens Shop in Baltimore, West Cork. 🌷🌿
Giclee prints of my newest design 'Nest' are now in stock. This design is from my new bird series and is inspired by love and family. I thought that I should put it up before the egg hatches! :)
Available in my webshop here.
My latest print for Summer 2017 celebrates 'The Baltimore Beacon' as it stands majestically against the blue sky on a summer's day. Baltimore is a little coastal village which lies near the very southern tip of Ireland. Combining my skills as a graphic designer and illustrator, this is a clean and graphic image with my trademark floral detail.
You can find the print in my shop here. A framed A3 version of the print can also be found at the current Uillinn- West Cork Arts Centre Member's Exhibition which runs until 27th May.
It was very exciting to see the 'Ireland in Bloom' pocket square that I collaborated on with Dublin brand Mr. Jenks on Dragon's Den last night as they pitched to the dragons!
You can find the pocket square on their website here.
