The Butterfly Garden

My most recent large commission was an outdoor mosaic piece for a charitable  community project in Swinford County Mayo, called the Butterfly Garden, a place to acknowledge miscarriages, stillbirth, neonatal, infant and child loss, by providing a physical place of comfort and love, that families can visit.The mosaic was finished at the end of May, 2022, after a long haul of days in my studio and onsite, sitting on a plastic stool in the middle of the forest, swathed in a flapping, cement splattered  rain-mac, battling wind and rain while infilling the butterfly and flower design with green foliage. I can say that mosaic making is, in no way, a glamorous activity.
