Happy Easter weekend everyone! My husband’s great grandfather fought in the Easter Rising 1916. He was stationed in the Four Courts and lived to tell the tale. His only daughter, Shiela, my grandmother-in-law was invited to the relatives event of the Éire Centenary celebrations in 2016 alongside her own children and grandchildren. In the same year, my sister-in-law and cousin-in-law ran their fourth and first (respectively) Dublin City Marathon and as an ode to their great grandfather and the amazing achievement they completed, Ciara asked me to make this celebratory frame combining the two. It highlights her great grandfathers bravery and patriotism and their own fantastic achievement. I could not be happier with how it turned out! #oreganodesigns #madewithlove #personalisedprints #personalisedillustrations #personalisedgifts #personaltouch #personalisedart #art #uniqueprints #digitalart #digitalprints #digitaldownload #diyprints #diyart #instaprints #instadesign #specialoccasion #easterrising #irishcentenary #warhero #19162016 #centenarycelebration #smallbusiness #dublin #dublinart #dublinprint #dublinbusiness #smallbusinessowner

We had school tours, workshops, design challenges, and debates in the development of the work. The window looks out on where an orchard once grew, and reflects on the integration of nature, culture & creativity which is at the core of this Gaelscoil. #1916 #LiosnanÓg #glasswindow #collaborativeart #19162016
