*my magic tree that my friend gave me two christmases ago, the first flowers of the year

*upcycled coat , delighted customer last week on my market stall.

*magic flowering wand I would say , seen last week as I ventured to film the swans for the film element of my show.
 All is going quite well , two months left to bring all my work together.
I feel in a privledged position , to know that I have an actual real space in Dublin to show it to the world , properly ,in a space of its own.

April is here.






work is going well , I couldnt believe it when I saw these beautiful hellebores growing at the bas of a tree hidden away in our garden.I had forgotten about them , seems they only come up in shady areas , and so havent been able to show themselves in quite a few years, until the garden conditions were right. They look unreal , as if someone planted silk fake flowers in the ground.
