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.
Not everything worthwhile is to do with painting! Over the last few weeks I have been spending quite a lot of time gathering wild blackberries. Quite a lot has been made into jam, more has gone into the freezer and some I have bottled! Why is it that bought blackberries are large and beautiful looking but have almost no flavour, whilst wild blackberries are full of flavour? Well worth the trouble of gathering them, in spite of a few scratches and nettle stings!
