About

Creating is in my blood...from early childhood I have loved textures and colours, and the joy that comes from making something with ones own hands.

I have been creating for many years now. I studied sculpture and art teaching in Limerick, Ireland.
I started working as a teacher in Ireland and then saw an advertisement for teachers in Botswana ( Southern Africa)..That was my first taste of overseas life!! .
From a very early age I had a huge desire to go to Africa, the art work, carvings, textiles fascinated me. I lived and worked in a little village called Moshupa for 3 years...creating and exploring in that rich continent. My memories of my life there are wonderful.
While in Botswana I met my Husband (Dutch) .... that's where the two gnomes on my photograph come from...a present from my father in law... With my husband we moved to the Czech Republic, and then Hungary, back to the Czech Republic again...then South Korea...and Now we are in Germany!!
I was teaching and art making, but my major discovery was my love for ceramics. I started a course while in Budapest and have not been able to get unstuck from the clay " Stuck in the Mud" !! since so to speak.

My eldest was born in Budapest, my next in Prague and the last little gem here in Germany....over the years I have exhibited, taught and created.....and now 4 months after my little one was born..

I decided to create Gallagher Gifts....

I absolutely love creating...and cannot fix on a particular area, or style, the richness and feel of fabrics inspire me for textile work. Clay, wire, glass bring me towards sculptural and 3D work styles.
I create art pieces and each one is a unique little Gift of art.

Gallagher Gifts allows me the flexibility to create and also focus on my children..

I don´t always enjoy creating their lunch boxes!! that´s another kind of art !!
