Solar shower

This has nothing to do with art, but I find it so inventif, that I have to post it. It is a very easy, cheap, but handy shower, not the camping type. You have hot showers for free, without missing the comford of your normal shower. Well almost.

1.First get 2 garden hoses, and put one end on to a tap inside the house. I put mine on the one beside the washing machine. You can take an outside one of course as well, so long it is not too far away from your solar  box.


2.Make a gap between window and wall or any other to go outside.











3. entering the box on a flat roof. Do not lay them straight onto the tarmac, cause the hose melts into the tarmac than.




4. Lay the garden hose in nice loops, otherwise you get cold gaps.






5. Put your second hand windows over the box.





6. Back into the house and connect to the warm water pipe of your shower. close house warm water and open solar water. Now you can shower like normal .The hot will be so hot after 1 hour sun, that you have to open  your cold tap as well to get the right mix.





You can do this with one hose as well, what gives you more pressure but only a quick shower, meaning water off, when soaping in.

In the beginning it stinks very much after garden hose,  but that goes after a while. Happy free showering

Dun Aengus is a slow air inspired by my visit to the Arann Island Inis More.

Tune The Theatre is an other one of my compositions, which got its name when I played it as the first tune ever played in the new theatre on the official opening of Cultúrlann Sweeney, Kilkee.

work in progress

Workspace with several paintings. I always need to have at least 10 paintings i am working on.

Sketches of seals transforming into Selchie, part of a painting of the burning ship.

The Merman is 20 years old and just recently i decided he wasn’t finished. So he looks like this now. I need to only finish little details here and there and he can go and breath his own air.

4 stages of the Phoenix. Physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. I find the 4 elements in it as well with earth, water, fire and air.

A quite funny one between my so serious work. I called it “Freediving” and everybody liking the water can surely relate to it. I think the pattern of people develops conveniently.

The first set up of a figure in stone.I like particulary the 3 dimensional look of the leg .

There is a first entry into the projects with documentation from the “Search for the divine female project” and some quotes in the text section.

I like to give a big thank you to my indoorwebdesigner from Artvaark-design, Kilrush, who made all this possible.


Here is the Dragon. You can print it easily cause it is black and white and fresh it up yourself. If ever somebody tries to sell it to you , should be me. Cheers.

The dragon associated with the number seven.
7 churches on scattery. But some say 11.

Cata Isle Mime Theatre: sneak preview

Cata Isle Mime Theatre’s first solo show combines mime with elements of puppeteering. Poured into sound, light and make believe, it shows you that everything is possible on stage.

A simple object is the cause of many unusual situations, turning into things, creatures and puppets. A series of scenes for young and old, bound together by simple objects: “Buckets”
