When I moved from my Haddington Road studio in January, I had hoped that I might be well ensconced in my new home by now.
However, though the builders have been working at full steam in the new house for the past few months, it will probably be March 2018 before I will be able to move in. So, sadly, there will not be a Christmas party this year.I’ll miss seeing everyone but hope we’ll be able to get together in the new year.My work is available in a number of galleries in Ireland, click on Links for details.
