New Stockist- The Floral Fish, Cork City

What a beautiful photo of my tea towels by new stockist The Floral Fish. If you haven't been there yet, this boutique florist is located in the Market Parade in Cork City and stocks the most exquisite and unusual flowers. The lovely shop also stocks a selection of my greeting cards. 

New Work- 'Flight Paths' Limited Edition Print

Giclee prints of my newest design 'Flight Paths' are now in stock. My latest design is inspired by the hypnotising murmurations of starlings that I see swirling around the sky here in West Cork.

You can find the print in my shop here

'Flowers by the Sea' Exhibition Press

My current solo show at The Puffin Cafe is mentioned in the latest House and Home magazine. The exhibition runs for just 3 more weeks. 

The cafe is open every weekend- 12-9pm on Saturdays and 12-7pm on Sundays. On St. Patrick's weekend it will also be open from 12-5pm on Friday 17th and Monday 20th March. 


'Flowers by the Sea' Solo Exhibition

Last Friday I set up my solo exhibition at the Puffin Cafe on Longstrand Beach, Castlefreke. The exhibition consists of some framed originals, prints, ceramics and textiles and the official opening is next Saturday 4th February from 6-8pm. A selection  of homemade pizza will be provided to give visitors a taste of the cafe's delicious menu which will also be available on the night. The following day I will be at the cafe from 2-4pm with my paper goods and homeware. 

This will probably be the last time that I will be exhibiting my work before the baby arrives and I'm delighted to be exhibiting in such a stunning location. Here is a photo that I took on Friday morning- it was so beautiful.

Goodbye 2016, hello 2017!

Here are the most liked photos that I posted on my Instagram last year. It was a very busy year with collaborations with Dublin business Mr. Jenks and Cork ceramicist Luke Sisk, commissions, new products, new stockists and a baby on the way! There were times when it was overwhelming for just one person, but I wouldn't have it any other way. Thank you to everyone who has supported and encouraged my little business in any way. Every like, comment, share and purchase has meant so much to me. And a special thank you to my wonderful husband who makes every year better than the last. Happy New Year everyone, I can't wait to see what 2017 holds for us all.
