It’s always good practice to get my work on the walls, it helps me articulate why some pieces belong together and others not. Seeing them over and over again everything I pass helps me clarify which direction to move in, which strokes work, which colours work, maybe less, maybe more.

Ive been using ink made from dried walnut shells. Mixed with water or acrylic pigment creates deep hues, which I have contrasted with lighter washes- mirroring the changing light and the silvery layers of sun. Thanks @diegodeloscampos for the ink.
Tudo bem Brasil!
It has been a real treat to spend the last week in Floripa @coletivonacasa and the weekend at #palhoça in the fresh ocean, watching the sun dip behind the mountains of the Atlantic Forest. This residency has given me space- space to paint every day, to explore ideas that were only thoughts and notions, and to develop my practice. The backdrop is the Atlantic once again, but exploring colours and textures on an entirely different continent- I am grateful to the @artscouncilireland for supporting my ideas and work, and look forward to pushing towards a solo exhibition to show you the sights from over here- the contrast between an ocean shared with home. Sure it’s never a sure thing, but I feel that things are moving in a positive direction.
Speaking of directions...The universe is pulling us towards our newest destination- a new chapter in an old friend... DUBLIN let’s be having ya!
Meditation sessions start again on JANUARY 15.
Suitable for anyone and everyone.

January’s sessions will allow you to take time to reflect upon a year gone by and to set intention for a year ahead. Each session will start with a gentle check in and practice of breathwork, and continue with the practice of guided meditation to create softness and space within.
We will kick off the first session by setting intentions, checking in with ourselves and understanding how we want to participate in this practice. In the following weeks we will continue with the practice of mindfulness of the breathing body, while exploring the landscape of our inner beings, that is, our minds and bodies.
Through meditation and breathwork practices you will work with your breath and your mind in a way that will allow you to become more grounded and aware of here and now, it will help you not to get lost in your own head and train of thoughts. Relax and ease into this moment. This is all there is.
Each meditation session is guided and is suitable for anyone and everyone.
