Percy Robin, the robin not the footballer !

Lately I have spotted this cheeky fat and adorable robin in the garden. Bold as brass he pops down and finished the dogs porridge (I know-spoilt).

Having learnt his routine, I set up the camera to capture the rogue.

Hidden behind the curtain, and patiently waiting, he wouldn’t come!! Realising he was onto me and suspicious of the quiet, I opened the doors and completely ignored him. Worked a charm!!

                                                    Heres a few pics, and some of the work that followed.

         This is the branch he sits on every morning, next to the only apple on the tree!

And what’s a butterfly?

And what’s a butterfly?, At best


He’s but a caterpillar, at rest.

Inspired by the stunning butterflies on the wild Buddleja growing outside, I veered away from my typical wildlife and fabric applique to try something truly different.

I made a few gift cards of these too. Wrapped in a little twine bundle, they make a perfect little gift in themselves.

 I wanted to do predominantly Irish butterflies as I love to work from my own images, but I was taken by a few colourful exotic species too! I kept the plant life home grown though, with buddleja, thistle and wild daisy.

I had in mind that one could display their favourite two or three in a row, but when photographing, I just loved this little formation. Something extra quirky and distinct about it.

  I framed these up in a raw wood frame from a sustainable forest, must take some pics of that soon… actually lots more pics to take but in the middle of shooting, I had a liitle visitor get very jealous!

Greeted this morning by the most amazing coffee, croissant and delightful feature about my art work!

In th last post, you can see the fantastic market I had attended recently. Well, a lovely journalist had bought a piece from me and contacted me afterwards to write this little feature to my absolute delight. What a fantastic surprise!

Enjoy the read!

Woodland Print Photography

Well I have been searching for inspiration for quite some time on how to capture the essence of my work in my photography. I wanted to show my little fuzzies in their natural environment and also where I spend most of my time. There is the most beautiful forest in Kerry, where all the birch has been stained a stunning copper colour from the sea air.

I just new this spot of closely knitted avenue of trees would be perfect. Had a different idea in mind though. The following are some fun images and images from the evening..

I was never one for hanging out my washing!!!

Hand Needlefelted Fox

Been so busy lately have really been neglecting my blog.

But I have been working on foxes since January.

This was the first one done over January. I’ve stuck with those earthy fabrics and colours throughout as its cutesy and rustic.

You can see where I have used fabric marker to outline the main charcteristics.

I gently build up the colours and tonal areas.

The face has such a pursed look and softness.

The tree came almost last, I felt it was a little lonely looking in terms of composition so added free hand stitching and fabric to create depth.

The second fox, I have made into a Giclee Print.

WHats a giclee print as opposed to all the others?

well its professionally scanned and edited to fully represent the original in terms of texture, colour, depth and longevity.

The image above is the beautiful Sarah holding the smaller of the two sizes with Hamish, but below is the actual print.

Its amazing to look at and touch, defies its flat surface.

Here it is with FREE P&P for a limited time only.

Here is a sneak peak of my two new foxes, not yet framed, as the frames have just been painted and need waxing

They will be a bit tighter in the mount, but like the overall composition and a true representation of the stunning clever and cute Irish Fox.
