How to draw with DaVinciBox

Hi there,

Some of you are aware of my secret project Da Vinci box I’ve been putting together behind the scenes. Here is a sneak peek at a speed drawing 

If you’d like a peek inside Da Vinci Box, take a little look here.

ReNAILissance with Tropical Popical at The National Gallery of Ireland

The eternally creative   Tropical Popical    nail bar have teamed up with The National Gallery of Ireland for an art exhibition with a difference. Rather than on canvas, these creatives have made tiny finger nail sized master pieces. I popped into their opening this evening and enjoyed a fun night of NGILates. Thank you to the guys at NGIEducation and Tropical Popical for the postcards for my dream team at Art Academy, the most creative kids in Ireland. I feel they will be even further inspired by this exciting work.

 

 

Sighting of a Pride of Lions in Harold’s Cross, Dublin

Phew, it’s just a bunch of 7 and 8 year olds making their block-ins, ahead of creating their Mastercopies of 19th Century realism art.  The painting’s are starting to look so real you would be forgiven for thinking these were real lions. 
The artists are studying the work of world famous artist Rosa Bonheur.  Rosa Bonheur was a french artist and her largest and most famous work can be seen in New York’s wonderful Met Museum. We do however have one of her paintings here in Ireland, a beautiful painting of a stag (the animal not the pre-wedding weekend away):  https://www.theartstory.org/artist-bonheur-rosa-life-and-legacy.htm

Before teaching at Art Academy this morning, I had a lovely morning of yoga with Sarah Shannon Yoga . You’ll see if you scroll down to the end of the post, that now Sarah Shannon Yoga seems to have some competitors who have copied her business model. 😄

They are planning a website for this venture at #Coderdojo

Olives, Oysters and Oranges at the Olivier Cornet Gallery

I am lucky enough to have the opportunity this month to exhibit my sketchbook alongside the Dublin Sketchers at the Olivier Cornet Gallery. The current exhibition celebrates Bloomsday and features work from the esteemed artists Eoin Mac Lochlainn, Yanny Petters, Michelle Boyle, Áine Divine, John Keating and Caitríona Ní Threasaigh.

To compliment the exhibition some of the Dublin Sketchers and I have completed sketchbooks along the same theme: “Olives, Oysters and Oranges” aka food references from James Joyces Ulysses.

Gallery proprietor Olivier Cornet who curated the sketchbooks explained he was thinking about how I often love to draw marble sculpture and decided to display the sketchbook up on a plinth. I appreciate the grandeur and elegance of a plinth. My sketchbook sits happily perched on her plinth until June 30th at No. 3 Great Denmark Street. Pop in to enjoy and view the full collection of Joycean sketchbooks and fine art.
