I am an artist, living and working in Northern Ireland. I believe that art is indistinguishable from real magic, that art is the true magic of our world. Hence this blog is dedicated to the magic of art and creativity.

My woodcarving is progressing well, the group of three figures to the right are now finished (apart from the final smoothing and polishing). The next stage is to finish the two figures to the left. I will then have to complete the background. Because I decided to isolate the figures first, there will be no features overlapping them.
I decided to go with the title in french, because that makes a stronger connection with the European tradition of "bathers" pictures. It is particularly the painting by Cézanne, « Les Grandes
Baigneuses », that comes to my mind.
