Some great news!
The other day I received the fantastic news that I have been awarded the Artist’s Bursary by the Galway County Council 2020! I can’t quite believe it to be honest but I am absolutely thrilled!
So what does this actually mean?
Well, it means that I am actually able to embark on a creative project that have been on my mind for a long, long time. A project that is currently under the working title: Reflections/Another World. But I will discuss more about that later on.
In my growing artistic practice and expression; weaving is my preferred medium to work and create with. However, lately my small, hand operated table loom has started to severely affect my upper-back. In fact, it has led to a few painful trips to the Physio. So this funding allows me to invest in some vital equipment for me to persist with my artistic work through woven cloth.
This is all very exciting for me – and I am looking forward to sharing it with you. I will use this space to document the progress of my upcoming project. And I hope it will give you an opportunity for insight into the creative process of a textile artist.
Talk to you again soon!
All the best,
