Out and about the hedgerows in Kells I gather plant material and photographs, loving particularly the nettles, Blackthorn and Gorse, which I learn to treat carefully!! I then create paintings and drawings, from which all my designs are developed
How do you pick nettles?

The delicate Blackthorn flower has fierce thorns!
