I saw the exquisite folk group the unthanks last night.(Saw them 4 or 5 years ago and was transfixed)
I wouldnt have missed them for the world. charming,unsettling in their honesty and stories of human fragility and cruelty.......,poignant and just so so real human and important . listen and see them if you can.
singing (no-one knows I am gone by tom waits)

venue Ormston House
delighted to have been invited to exhibit at this inaugural salon.I have to say making books is a definate sign of madness !!, it is NOT NORMAL......it takes forever to make them , it is difficult to charge very much for them etc etc .....BUT I love doing it , and it offers me a way to nest my work within an affordable and accessible context.
If you happen to be reading this and can go to Limerick , please say hello to my dear little books , and enjoy looking at all the other artists work.
Thank you to the curators of this show for the invitation.
