Open Studio



Do you want to know what goes into making a picture book, where I get my ideas from or simply have a nose around my studio to see how messy I am?

Here's your chance...

This Friday night as part of Culture Night you'll have a chance to see me potter about in my attic. I'll be showing roughs, dummy books, and how I make a book step by step. You'll also have a chance to read and doodle along with me, and l'll answer all your questions.

You can also take a peek inside Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick's and Annie West's studio.

Broadcast from The National Library in Dublin, Sligo Library and in the University of Ulster in Belfast this Friday from 7-9pm.

Huge thanks to Children’s Books Ireland, Temple Bar Cultural Trust,Young at Art, the National Youth Council of Ireland and the Department of Tourism,
Culture and Sport for coming up with this great idea.

Yes would love to meet up for artist date again. It was such an enjoyable afternoon. You will have to let me know when your open cottage craft fair is on I'll have to pop down to see it. Have fun in college! x N
