A Quack Too Far Screenings:

Bucheon International Animation Festival 2019

I wonder what might happen when a very annoying duck takes – a -quack -too -far- ?!!

A Quack Too Far was made during my BA (hons) Animation in Coláiste Dhúlaigh/University of Wolverhampton. You can take a look at the design process in my college learning journal here.

Naturama and My Naturama Nature Journal out now

Number one best seller!

A dream project for me as a life long nature lover, Naturama and My Naturama Nature Journal were a joy to illustrate. I got to work on researching and drawing Irish wildlife throughout the seasons and I’m so happy with the result. The books were co created with the writer Michael Fewer and published by  Gill Books. Naturama came out first and is a beautiful introduction to Irish wildlife, regardless of whether you live in the countryside or in the city, there’s lots of things to learn about and get you started as a nature enthusiast. It was so cool to see it become a number one bestseller and meet loads of wonderful children who were loving the book! My Naturama Nature Journal has projects for children to do outside and field guide notes sections to write and draw in. It gets everyone outside turning rocks upside down looking for worms :) Click here for all the latest Naturama related news….
