I grew up in Ballinteer. I have always walked in Marlay Park. I love the fact that Evie Hone lived and worked here. Her plaque outside my studio is framed inside the branches of a beautiful Virginia creeper. Those seasonal colours inspired her stained glass and now they inspire me. Some say the courtyard is haunted by a very glamorous countess. There is so much history here. It’s is the perfect location for me to create and show off my collection of work.
Denise designs and paints on site so visitors can watch her at work.
