Handmade macrame plant hangers, homewares and accessories alongside original nature photography.
My interest in macrame began when I wanted to make plant pot hangers for some of my houseplants. A friend showed me the basic knots and then I began to teach myself more advanced macrame techniques. I now specialise in plant pot hangers but I also make wall hangings, home wares and have a range of accessories including clothing, bags, key-rings, jewellery and more!
I’ve had a life long interest for photography, dabbling quite a bit throughout my youth and in 2008 I received my diploma in Fine Art Photography from Limerick College of Further Education, in my home town in Ireland. Over the years I have built up a portfolio of fine art images, most of which I would describe as abstract nature.
Nature is at the core of both these things, my houseplants and focussing on the details through my photography. Growing up in the country side I have always enjoyed connecting with nature and being outside, moving to a big city took a while to get used to but being surrounded by plants certainly makes it easier! With the skills I have developed I aim to connect more people with nature and plants by bringing it into their homes through macrame and photography.
