Hare Inspiration & Art

It all begins hare…well here.

Growing up in Yorkshire I loved to hear the beautiful folklore tales and Irish mythology from the soft lilting Donegal accent of my lovely Dad, Brian Sharkey.

I’ve since moved to that area in Donegal, in fact to the exact area where my most favourite of tales was based… and yes! There are lots of hares. This story told of magical Hares, of course …in particular a small boy who changed into a hare!

These stories were also inspiration for my  starting an animation degree some years ago…I believe illustration and animation are the perfect way to share the rich heritage of storytelling we have flowing through to the tips of our Celtic roots in Ireland.
