My name is an Irish name that means 'dark haired', and as is the tradition with Irish names is not pronounced the way it looks! It has a hard C like a K, and is pronounced like the Russian name Kira, or like Keira, as in Knightly!
I'm originally from Dun Laoghaire in Dublin, along with my husband Jay who is a painter and who's work you can view here on his website. We have one daughter age 14 and three sons aged 16, 8 and 5, and we all live together in a little cottage right by the sea in county Wicklow, about an hour south from Dublin.
I studied ceramics and sculpture but should have studied textiles and now spend my spare time stitching and sewing. With four children, plus one extra for a few hours every day, I don't have as much spare time as I would like of course but to see some examples of my work check out my labels 'Redwork' and 'Things I Made'.
I love taking photos.
And I also love to write.
