I have been featured in many publications in Ireland and in International ones including Le Vision, France, Observer, Tattler, Chicago Fashion Magazine, and Madame Figaro, etc. I am delighted to show some of my work here on Etsy. I hope that you enjoy it. Many, many hours have gone into creating them and the joy it gives me to create and hopefully! make people happy is something I hold close to my heart.
Please feel free if you are ever in Dublin, Ireland to drop into my shop and say hello. Looking forward to seeing you at 6 Cows Lane, Temple Bar, Dublin 8, phone 353 1 6717287
