Ode to my Family


Ode to my Family - The Cranberries

A heartfelt song with beautiful lyrics that resonate so much with me.

"My mother, my mother,  she'd hold me,

she'd hold me when I was out there ".

Hand beaded pearls, vintage lace, French fabric, Irish tweed and manually typed lyrics are stitched together in this piece. 

Blues ,  greens and turquoises are complemented by the vintage floral fabric that I sourced in France. 

As each textile artwork is made to order, no two pieces are alike so some fabrics may vary. 

A long time Cranberries fan, when we were in college in Limerick in the mid 1990s we were in awe of their sound and how cool Dolores O Riordan was.

Their music and her voice gives me goosebumps and takes me back to those years in college. I was truly devastated when she died.


The piece is framed in a limed wood box frame behind glass. As I am passionate about sustainability, my frames, packaging and wrapping are custom made in Ireland.  

Frame measures 26 x 26 cm.

Artwork measures 12 x 12 cm

Each framed artwork is packed very carefully in custom made cardboard boxes followed by a layer of bubble wrap and then wrapped with biodegradable wrapping paper and tied up with string (these are a few of my favourite things!
