RTE Nationwide

The RTE Nationwide interview was broadcast last night. It was filmed in and around my studio in Delgany. Here is the link to the RTE website where you can view the interview on RealPlayer.,null,228

Most of the work shown in the film will actually be on show at my next exhibition in Whites Hotel, Wexford as part of the Wexford FRINGE festival.

Summer is Over...Back to Work!

Is it just me or did we just have a pretty decent summer for the first time in years? A very busy one too...

My painting workshops in Achill went really well and are continuing to grow. The Achill Tourist office have been doing great work helping promote them.

RTE Nationwide (Irish TV news programme) spent a day filming me in and around the studio in Delgany last month, which I have to say was pretty exciting. There is no broadcast date confirmed yet but I'll be posting it here as soon as I know.

I have contributed a piece (above) to the SCOOP foundation art auction which takes place on September 19th at the Ormond Wine Bar in Dublin. I'm delighted to be part of this auction which will be raising money to build a new school in Cambodia. Find out more here.. With my own twins starting play school this week it feels like a good initiative to be involved in.

There's a nice mention and an image in the new edition of the Irish Arts Review. It is promoting my show at the Wexford FRINGE festival which takes place next month (Oct 24th - 30th) in Whites Hotel, Wexford. I will be posting more about the show and the upcoming Art Fair 2010 which takes place in November as we get closer to the time.

Finally, Culture Night ( on Sept 24th in the Bad Art Gallery on Francis Street, Dublin is shaping up to be another great night in the gallery. The gallery will be staying open until midnight and will be hosting Dr.Sketchys Anti Art class ( as well as holding a number of painting demonstrations in the gallery window. I will be giving a painting demonstration in the gallery from 5pm to 7pm. Can't wait!
