    Im an Artist and craft worker and live in Ballyferriter just outside dingle town , I live on my own for part of the week and have teenage kids who come visit a few times a week ..I live in the house that I built myself which has plenty of room and anyone who stays has their own private space .......I have some workers that do a few days a week to help me with my art ........Alisa from russia worked with us last year and she loved it here ( she is coming back this year she learnt Irish which is quite amazing) and that's how I found out about work away ...I have a large studio where the art magic happens and create all my work from recycled materials ....if you look at my profile photos you will see Misha she is staying at present and also loves the work I encourage all who come to create some art that they can take home
    If you have any other questions please ask and I will try and answer
    But please not to many emails
