Spending 12 weeks of my life fully dedicating myself to making art was such a beautiful self-discovery process. At Cow House I had my own studio and there were many different art supplies to use and try out. Rosie and Frank were the best program directors I could've asked for—I actually felt like they were part of my family!
The best part of Cow House was spending time in the studio, lighting up the fire, going on weekly trips, having dinner at Frank and Rosie's house, and (of course) eating Caitriona's food (it reads Catrina btw… Irish names can be a bit confusing).
Cow House changed my life and made me realize that visual art is part of my essence and that I should always make time to make art.
Go Raibh Maith Agat to Cow House Studios, Rosie, Frank, Folly, Caitriona, Laurette, Rosie's parents, the boys, and to the whole cohort <3
What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
My life dream has always been to have a rainbow cake for my bday. As I was going to celebrate my 20th birthday at Cow House, I knew that Caitriona (the chef) was gonna bake a cake for both me and Catalina (the other girl who had the same birthday as I), but I didn't know what it was gonna be like. To my surprise, she baked the most beautiful and delicious rainbow cake in the world. Even if it sounds like a silly thing, that surprise meant the world to me.
