What had me all of a tremble this week?

Three things (that I can talk about) had me a tremble, this week


Teacup tremble

First of all, I have added ‘Teacup Tremble’ to my prints shop!

It’s delicate and pretty and a real contrast to my other prints. I have it hanging in my own home and I hope you’ll like it too.

You can check the details out here or take a sneak peak below.

Workshops coming

I’ve been doing some planning for the year ahead and I am excited to say that I will be offering three, weekend workshops this year.

The first of the weekend workshops (a painting one) will take place in late January when we will return to the beautiful and historic oasis of Airfield Estate in Dundrum. Co. Dublin. After that, I will run a workshop for Creative Entrepreneurs in February and then another painting workshop in August. And if they are as popular as last year I am looking at a fourth!

I’ll be announcing  dates soon here on my newsletter.

I’ve had many years of experience in giving workshops and teaching both as an artist and also in previous career lives. From the serious business of passing on the tradition of creativity to the simple joy of painting, I am committed and passionate about teaching, sharing and living creativity. The onus of the weekend is on inclusivity. You do not have to be an experienced artist to attend or enjoy the weekend.

I intend them to be a down to earth, inclusive experience, designed to bring people together for the joy of painting and good company.


These weekend workshops are now in their fourth year, with many attendees returning year after year.

Launch dates and other workshop news will be available with priority to mailing list members. All you have to do to receive more info on the weekend workshops is to join the mailing list, here.

When the weekends go on sale, but sure to be quick off the mark – they normally sell out quick.

What else had me all of a tremble?

Well last night I went to see  ‘The Unthanks” and yes some trembling happened…

“All I can say about the Unthanks is that they make my heart beat faster, or smile a lot, or cry. They mean it. And not in some dreary ‘authentic’ way that feels like a penance for the listener, but just natural. They sing and play what the hell they like, and if you’ve heard nicer harmonies this year, I may call you a liar. I’m glad to be around at the same time as them.”
