Chelsea in Bloom

A Gold medal winning installation for the Dubarry or Ireland brand at Chelsea in Bloom 2014 in London. The installation is about the story and the journey that the brand represents. The dreamy Irish landscapes and feeling at home in them. The feel of the colours blending together to create something wild, green and lush. The grasses, Iris and wild poppies are some plants that have inspired me to try

Kokedama

The art of Kokedama is a form of Bonsai and originated in Japan in the 1600’s. Originally the idea was to grow a plant in a pot until the roots were strong enough to display the plant in a hanging fashion, roots showing. The concept of creating a combination of suspended plants that together and each in itself creates its own little microcosm is fascinating and if you look up

Rose Cottage, Strandhill

I love Shells Surfcafe in Sligo and after doing designs for the garden of the cafe the owners Jane and Miles asked me to help design their interior of their newly bought cottage in Strandhill Sligo. Their vision for the small derelict cottage which they bought and rebuilt with love and dedication has been extraordinary. The couple wanted to combine industrial style with the spirit of the old cottage and I

Cookie and Cream’s Reclaimed Sanctuary

The client was a family of four with two young teenage children who took part in RTÉ’s Super Garden in 2012. The family loved entertaining and wanted a space for dining and relaxing in the garden. They also had two beautiful rabbits, Cookie and Cream, who needed to be taken into consideration when thinking about the prospective space. The site used to be a meadow before the estate was built.

Primulas at Lissadell

Irish Independent Weekend Magazine | 7 March 2015 Finally the time of the year has come where small bits of colour start to show in the garden and our natural environment. Over the past few weeks I have watched with delight as pretty Snowdrop have scattered in white drifts through gardens and small early varieties of Iris and Muscari lend a hue of blue and purple to borders. On a
