I’m Back!

Hey strangers,

I’m finally back on track. it’s been a tough few months. I have had epilepsy since I was 9 years of age, I am now 32 and through the years it gradually got worse to the extent where I almost died in a seizure last year. So this year, a few months ago, I went with the advice from my neurology team in Dublin and Cork to have brain surgery. It was terrifying but I knew it was for the best. I was called for surgery on Mothers Day for the following morning and 14 and a half weeks later…today…I am pretty much back to normal (a few side effects like tiredness, memory loss etc) but without seizures. The Waterford Harvest Festival is on September 10th of this year so I can’t wait to exhibit my work outdoors for Art on the Railings! That’s my goal! Exciting! xx

I hope this year is starting off great for you all and I hope it gets better!

Welcome to my site, as you can see, I’ve updated with all the Christmas commissions of 2015!

Thank you to everyone for your support, I will be away in late March/April/May so if anyone would like to order commissions for birthdays, weddings, Mothers Day etc. NOW is the time to order but don’t forget I also do vouchers.

All you need is a top quality photo of the chosen pet (dog, cat, horse, cow, whatever you want!) , preferably a good camera and in daylight where I can see all the hairs, lashes, whiskers, eyes etc. to complete detail.

Don’t hesitate to email me anytime from anywhere. Please spread the love and tell people close to you about my work, word of mouth seems to work best I have found and the internet ofcourse. Check out my page on Facebook too!

Have a fantastic weekend, looking forward to hearing from you. xx
