Hey , I think something twinkly and snowy and cozy is going down (how was it for you ?)




Of course with my impecable sense of timing ,I just happened to chance upon these lovelies. I recently bought a huge box of vintage box fresh (as they say stateside) greetings cards.
So to all my dear friends I wish you a fun time and hope that you enjoy these images from original 1940,s cards.

happy heart club medals


people ....we seem a little in need of a reality check, listen.... ITS ALL GOING TO BE OKAY we are merely spirits passing through , we cannot let these silly money people upset us , if they sat down for a minute and made themselves or a friend the happy heart medal (shown here) just think how much more meaningful their lives could become.
Instead they just keep wheeling and dealing the countries assets and flittering any integrity that this country has to the wind. BUT DO NOT SUCCUMB sit down now ! make a happy heart medal and dont listen to " the man "

I am here ✍✍✍♡♡♡

something worth supporting

I love this group of artists ,who are working on the sidelines to ensure that another space in art is upheld. Go Mart!! well done , the following is their own words....

‘The Free Art Project’

Mart would like to put a call out to Artists of All Media and Styles.

‘The Free Art Project’ is a project designed to bring Art back to the community at a reasonable price – FREE!!

We shall be hitting the city streets of Dublin and Galway Cities
On December 20th & 21st.

We will be handing out Free Art to the passing public on Grafton St - Dublin and Shop Street – Galway. We shall also be placing various other pieces including Installations and Performances around the cities.

It’s all about bringing Art Back to the Community while highlighting the cost of Art today and squashing the stereotype that Art is just for Artists.

All of this Art shall be free for the public to leave in situ or take home!

As ever MART’s primary aim is to help you promote your work! So whether you are part of an Art Group with lots of pieces sitting on shelves dying for a home or if you have pieces stored away itching to see the light of day, or even if you have a Fab new idea that is looking for somewhere to go…NOW IS YOUR CHANCE!


Deadline for submissions is December 19th. It can be dropped off in various locations in Dublin and Galway, just send us an email for more info:
info@mart.ie

And also visit our great online Gallery at www.mart.ie

Its the light coming through the drawing that I like , thats definately why I like film and illuminated reality so much

hello stars the earth says hello !





I am at this moment in the laborious and completely lunatic process of trying to get a tiny little film made in time for my christmas assesment at college TOMMOROW (omg) It will be a part of my work titled

whatever one loves ......is (an installations of drawing/paintings and objects)

, so the most logical thing to do seemed to be this , ie.escaping to my blog, I had a little blink and you,ll miss it show in the new art gallery within the local theatre. the art exhibition was a group show and was a part of a local poetry festival . It was a great oppurtunity to hang my current work the way I,d like it to be seen and was also a great and positive experience due to the lovely new local arts officer (yay to Ciaran ) and to the supportive fellow artists (high five y,all! xx )
So I am posting up a few images of my part of the group show .
