I started my creative career with a degree in Ceramics from NCAD and after many twists and turns, I set up Button Studio over 13 years ago. Buttons Studio is a fun, vibrant craft business that makes unique colourful pieces by repurposing everyday ordinary things. Using the medium of clear resin and reclaimed buttons.
I make framed art pieces that celebrate all family milestones uniquely and thoughtfully.
I have always been inspired by colour and the effect that it can have on our state of mind. Button Studio was created out of this curiosity and my love to take everyday objects and turn them into pieces of art to preserve and enhance them. To me, everyday objects are anything that have found their way into a person’s heart.
I love buttons for their colour, their range of sizes and shapes, and how they are connected to us in all sorts of ways. Buttons can hold lots of different meanings – from the castaway buttons in a family’s old tin, to buttons on newborn’s baby-grow or on your favourite jumper. Buttons are a little piece of our life story that might otherwise be lost… until I catch them and place them somewhere where they can be treasured forever.
