This design is inspired by my childhood. Born and raised on a farm in Donegal in the West of Ireland, I remember walking along our lane watching the birds fly in and out of the hedges filled with luscious green leaves and ferns. This design symbolises nature, exploration and the wonder and magic of childhood.
Whiskey The Lamb
Whiskey was our little lamb born on our farm one cold harsh spring. He caught pneumonia and almost died. My father brought him into our kitchen and my siblings and I warmed his fleece of wool with a hairdryer, and fed him bottles of milk.
The design itself is an interpretation of ones dreams, as depicted in the poem, with gold and silver on a blue grey and white cloudy backdrop
Growing up in the West of Ireland meant childhood summers were spent in the bog harvesting turf. I remember our lunchbreaks were spent sitting in the warm sun amongst the bog cotton, having picnics and flasks of tea, whilst holding onto my ponytail so it would not blow away. It was the ultimate freedom.
