Five of my recent ink on paper works were part of In:Sight, a celebration of the arts in Callan at the wonderful Fennelly’s of Callan: one in the window and four in the snug. The work will remain in Fennelly’s until the end of July. Check out their five star coffee, breakfast and lunch.

Over Easter, I was finally able to book my second residency week at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre in Annaghmakerrig. This time I stayed in Miss Worby’s room, which is said to be haunted by her ghost and I worked in Studio 7 on another series of Ink on Paper. Thanks again to Kilkenny County Council’s Arts Office for the bursary.
