all you need to know!!
Thank you for visiting my page.
I have been collecting driftwood all my life! I just love it. I love the mystery of it, the beauty of it, the wonder of where it’s been and what it once belonged to! I would make products, art, with it as gifts etc and for my home. In recent years however I started to make items to sell as the interest was there. These days I collect on a much larger scale. Every product uses a large quantity of driftwood. So I never have enough! I love storms, they bring in so much into the small coves where I live.
It is treated for two weeks in a solution to eliminate any sea bugs, then dried out naturally, that takes anything from 3-12 months, depending on the size of the piece. Then the slow process of sorting and cutting. Overall it is a very slow physical and tough process, but, did I say already, I love it!!
I’m very lucky to live on the cliffs of Ballymacaw, between Dunmore East and Tramore, Co. Waterford. I scavenge the coves after every storm and drag the pieces up a cliff, up the field to my house. Its hard work! But worth it! My 10 year old son is my partner in crime! He will kill me if I don’t give him a mention! So thank you Callum x
My Pebble Art includes pebbles collected from the same coves. Each piece consists of pebbles obviously! Driftwood, sea glass, and personalised to a family name. I include pets, hobbies etc. These are unique as they are bespoke and 100% personalised to suit the customer.
I am a Graphic Designer, worked in the industry for 10 years before moving onto my passion for Photography. I have worked as a professional photographer for over 15 years. I still work as a photographer and lucky to have my own purpose built studio by my house. When I’m not busy editing I want to be getting arty!! There’s nothing better than creating art. Especially with these beautiful materials on my doorstep.
If you have any questions or have an idea you might like me to try, please get in touch and we can make it work. Thanks xx
