Market times

I had a wee stall at St. Georges Market in Belfast a couple of weeks ago and thought i'd share some pics of it! It was my first market experience so i was feeling a bit nervous but it went really well and hopefully i'll get to do lots more.

This weekend i had the pleasure of showing my work at Forfey Festival 09.  
Forfey is an intimate folky festival, held at a farm in the wilds of co.fermanagh, where people can go and appreciate art and music..... It's really exciting to be part of something which is supporting local home grown northern irish talent!

A wee pic of people checking out my work in the arthouses....

out with the old....?

I was looking through some photos on my computer and stumbled across my old Foundation final project from about 4(ish) years ago. I used to think it was totally removed from what my work is about now but i can see it was just the start of my learning curve.  I don't think i take my work so seriously that, i don't mean that i don't's just that i learnt to have fun with my designs and illustrations.  I was really proud of this piece, still sortof am, but me and my work have changed and moved on alot since then......

Here it is....
