Artist In Primary School

I'm delighted to have been selected for the Artists In Primary Schools Scheme by Tipperary Arts Office.
I will be working with the beautiful Portroe National School, overlooking Lough Derg. We aim to deliver a storytelling programme that will reach the whole school, from Junior Infants to Sixth Grade. The children will listen to stories, create their own stories and learn how to tell them. Our project starts in September 2019.


Tandem Tale Twins Tour

I'm very excited to announce that Silke and I will be going on storytelling tour together again. As Tandem Tale Twins we will perform in both Germany and Ireland for adults and children. Events are planned in October and November 2019. 
More information coming soon.
