The kitchen in my granny’s house in Dublin, cooking toast on her Aga cooker.

My Desert Island EDC (The handful of things you cannot live without):

My family, chapstick, a knitting project, coffee and wine.

I Knew I Wanted To Work At Northside When…

I realized there was a magical place, an art studio in a preschool where I could spend my days creating with enthusiastic children!
