Its always wonderful to chat with friends, and this conversation was a very special one.
It was such a joy to engage with this warm and friendly family for a conversation about what it’s like to be an emerging artist in Ireland. Not only was I free to chat and talk about how I came to my role as an artist in my 60’s, but I was delighted to learn so much from a family that have been immersed in the art world, literally, for generations. In many ways our journey into exploring visual art is so far removed, but coming together produced a conversation that was both delightful and very informative. I learned so much as Sarah and her family were most generous in sharing their knowledge and experience with me as we spoke.
