The Breadwinner, Butler Gallery, Kilkenny

I am delighted to be artist-in-residence in the Butler Gallery during the exhibition around Cartoon Saloon’s film the Breadwinner.

I will be in the gallery on Tuesdays and Thursdays 2-4pm until 12 July and visitors will be able to make their own cut-out designs inspired by the papercut style of the Story World in The Breadwinner. I will also run a workshop as part of National Drawing Day (Saturday 19 May 12-4pm) and children’s workshops on three Sundays: 27 May, 10 June and 24 June (5-7 years: 11am-12.30pm and 8-12 years: 2pm-3.30pm).

What an honour to be showing my vinyl floor and wall drawing alongside large prints of My Carlow, a graphic novel by Studio Weave and an architectural structure by Todo Por La Praxis, as part of Town Planners in the Studio Gallery at VISUAL Centre for Contemporary Art. A big thank you to producers Ann Mulrooney of VISUAL in Carlow and to Eilis Lavelle and Rosie Lynch of Workhouse Union for asking me and to Jon for helping with the install.

Camino Fundraiser

Camphill Camino Trek Fundraiser Artsale

Purchase an original and affordable piece of art for on your wall or to give away as a present and contribute towards a good cause.

From 30 September – 7 October 2017 I will take part in the Camphill Camino Trek from Ponferrada to Sarria to help to raise funds in support of the inspiring work that Camphill does around the country. As part of my fundraising efforts I am selling a series of small abstract drawings. All drawings cost €45.00 only and are made using archival and acrylic inks. The price includes a simple IKEA frame or postage to anywhere in the world. 100% of the proceeds will go towards the Camphill fundraiser. The drawings on offer can be viewed on my facebook page, or in person in KCAT.

Drawings can be taken home after purchase. Shipments will take place after the completion of the walk. If you have already made a donation and feel you are missing out on this opportunity, please talk to me and I am sure we can come to an agreement. Contact me if you want to secure a drawing of your choice or if you have any questions.
