You may have spotted my short YouTube video on my 'About Me' page. In late 2020, I decided to apply for the Local Enterprise Office Trading Online Voucher for funding to help improve my website rankings on search engines. I'm not one for appearing in front of a camera, but I'd been thinking about how I might best tell the story behind my design work, and advice was that a short video was the way to go. I spoke with a few friends and they suggested that I speak with Seán Phair of Ambiguous Fiddle. We came up with a plan...
Inspiration in Nature

I hope you are all keeping well amidst these uncertain times. Due to bad weather and the Coronavirus/Covid-19 restrictions, I've only set up at one Skibbereen Farmers' Market so far this year. So, as well as missing visits to family and friends, I'm also missing seeing my fellow stallholders and regular visitors to my stall, both human and canine! But my online shop is still open, if you need to order anything. My designs are printed and made in Ireland, with health advice adhered to at all times. I work from home and fold, label and package every item myself. Delivery might...
