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.

I’ll keep you updated on this project. I’m very excited to share more soon.
How are you? I’ve been playing about with stop motion video editing and I’m excited to share something I’ve enjoyed making. If you’d like to watch a video tutorial on how to draw the cute Daisy below click here
Disney’s The Lion King remake is in cinemas at the moment. From monkeys to lions, the Art Academy artists have painted them all.
We are off to a very colourful start here at this week’s Art Academy Summer Camp as we welcome 12 promising artist’s to their week of Rosa Bonheur painting. Stay tuned to see their work progess. I am very excited to see what these guys can do as so far, I’m impressed with their work ethic and colour mixing skill.
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

I’m having fun prepping some exercise for Art Academy next week. Excited for our fun week of art ahead. See you then.
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.
