I hope you are well and that you are managing in these uncertain times.
I am writing to share a little news and to thank those of you have who been in touch and have asked about future workshops. I was very moved when I saw so many of you in the springtime at my birthday zoom and also at the book opening. There was a wonderful atmosphere at both meetings. I clearly felt the supportive and loving community that had had built up over the many years of meeting in art workshops, meditating and creating together and sharing deep experiences.
I came to Kilkenny in June and also visited Kerry for a few days, which was wonderful. The last year has brought changes to all at Blanchville – because of the lockdowns they did not host groups for a year, until this springtime. Once they have honoured all this year’s bookings they plan to close the main house, and completely renovate the basement area. It is no longer possible to host art workshops at Blanchville. Feeling much gratitude for having been able to work in that beautiful space for so long, my painting material is now stored in my sister’s attic.
It felt like a natural ending to a very fulfilling period of my life. Since then several painting friends have asked about future workshops, and I have been wondering if and how to continue working in Ireland. I have been waiting to see how the health situation would evolve in France and in Ireland, and in what conditions it will be possible to travel and listening to hear what life wishes from me. It seems that travel and other restrictions are being put in place again and will last for the next few months.

Information about my holiday workshops and this beautiful area are on the website and will be updated latest by mid January. The booking procedure will be as flexible as possible, taking into account the health and travel situation. Let me know if you are interested in coming.
Kilkenny: We are looking at possible new venues & will let you know when there is news.
Zoom Meetings:Besides these ideas for in person meetings, I have decided to try out working on Zoom, details are in the posts on the right.
We are both well and very grateful for the simplicity and ease of our country life. The last period has brought both challenges and unexpected opportunities into our lives. We experience both the blessings of small and big joys, and the sadness of witnessing the widespread suffering in the world.
I think of you and treasure all the bright colours and deep experiences that we have shared.
Love and warm wishes for your good health and well being,
