I produced a website for Dublin City Council which brings together their 3 residencies opportunities for artists and makers: St.Patrick’s Lodge, The Red Stables and Albert Cottages. See the main site at Art Residencies Dublin.
I recently produced a website for a new Irish product that has been doing very well in-stores and on-line.
Canopi is a new product from Irish entrepreneur Sandra Walsh.
Canopi is a seamless way of adding arm cover to a sleeveless garment, instantly transforming the look of your outfit. It acts as covers for the arms; it is produced as a one piece which clips on to the bra straps for added security.
The site includes an e-commerce shop that processes electronic payments, orders with size and colour variations, shipping options and international delivery.

Artist Maureen Burke availed of my One-to-one website deal recently. We spent a morning session together, she brought along a CD of her images and her biography and artist’s statement. Over 3 hours or so we registered her domain-name, set up hosting, installed a content management system, styled the site and uploaded her content. All before lunch!

I’ve just finished off work on a new website for Neyde Lantyer, a Brazilian visual artist working with photography and installations. Currently, she lives in Amsterdam-Holland, where she develops her own projects while takes active role in art organizations and cultural enterprises. As an artist living between two countries, her artwork carries the influence of both her background in Brazil and her life in Holland.

I just completed a site I’m very proud of for Beechlawn Organic Farm. As well as being a rural family-business, Beechlawn Farm supports the local and seasonal food production and is the kind of business we should all be supporting at this time!
The site highlights their Award-winning Fruit and Veg Box Scheme which has recently won the Bord Bia’s ‘National Organic Awards’, Organic Box Scheme of the Year 2010. The site includes an easy to use e-Commerce system for ordering your Box, which if you’re in their Free Delivery Area is dropped straight to your door at no extra cost!
Una is an artist and illustrator and uses animation, collage, painting and drawing in her work. She studied painting, drawing and print making at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam and The School of Visual Arts, New York and animation at the University of the West of England, Bristol.
‘I love the madness of collage. A medium, in the manner I use it, that allows me to juxtapose recognizable found images and transformed cutouts in pictorial narratives that invite the viewer to apply their own stories. Narratives at once oddly recognizable, yet uncomfortably odd; narratives often downright obscene, whilst pushing the chuckle-button; narratives that always aim to open the chute direct to the subconscious, that provoke an intuitive, not literal, sense, of what’s going on. That is my own goal in their making and what I hope the viewer will respond to in the viewing.’

Orla Whelan is a contemporary Irish artist. Her work deals primarily with the exploration and representation of subjectivity. Informed by personal experience, literature and art history, her work attempts to tease out the desire and compulsion to investigate the self, and its condition. Taking shared human experience as a departure point, she intuitively investigates the fields of memory, perception and representation.

In 2009, Dublin City Council Arts office launched a new pilot initiative in the Red Stables Artists Studios (with the kind assistance of The Arts Council), to commission an emerging curator to plan and devise an outdoor exhibition of temporary artworks for Saint Anne’s Park.
For this year’s project invited curator, Sally Timmons has selected two artists to consider the notion of a folly (defined as an ornamental structure or building, whose creation reflects a whimsical inclination on the part of the builder). With this in mind, the artists Mark Clare and Fionnuala Hanahoe have developed artworks that will provide a physical and visual interference within the environs of the park, holding intrigue as visually stimulating yet seemingly futile functional structures.
The last two days of the project are this weekend, Saturday and Sunday from 12pm until 5pm. A closing reception for the project, Hopeful Structures will take place at The Red Stables Artists Studios in Saint Annes Park, Dublin from 4 – 6 pm this coming Saturday 3rd July
