Hello. I’m Anne, originally from Kilkenny, Ireland, now living, designing and gardening in beautiful West Cork. I have a degree in Landscape Horticulture from University College Dublin, a Higher National Diploma in Design Crafts from Coleg Menai Bangor/North East Wales Institute and am a graduate of Modules 1,2 and 3 of the Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design online courses.
I’m inspired by my local environment, the little things in nature, folklore and architectural details. My dream is to inspire people to look up from their phones, to take notice of the wonderful world around us and help me in my mission to protect it for future generations.
I love natural materials and bold, bright patterns; have lots of favourite colours (turquoise, teal, jade, scarlet, sea green, indigo and slate grey); have a passion for live music, good food, wildlife gardening and sport, especially hurling and rugby, and am a complete soft touch when it comes to hairy lurchers.
