Claire has provided an update to her story about building a forest garden using techniques outlined in Mary’s upcoming book The Wild Way. Read along & check out the photos here.
Not only is Mary artistic in the wild, she can put that talent to paper as well. Some of her artwork is featured throughout MUNA, the latest album by musician Marketa Irglova. You may know Marketa from the band The Swell Season or as “girl” in the film Once. MUNA, released just last week, is Marketa’s second solo record.
Marketa is an old friend and she asked me to do some drawings for her new album MUNA. I sometimes do prayer drawings for friends which involve me connecting in to the situation that needs help and putting a pen to paper and watching what emerges, all the while holding the best possible outcome in my heart, whatever that may be. I followed that same process for each of Marketa’s beautiful songs and I am honoured that she used them in her album booklet.
Thanks to Landscape Architects NY for including Mary on this list of 7 Female Landscape Architects That You Need To Know About. Honoured to be in this company!
This afternoon Mary had a chat on The Last Word with Matt Cooper on Today FM. Catch Mary at 48:22.
Mark spoke to Richard Fitzpatrick from the Irish Examiner on 23rd August ahead of her visit to the Kinsale Arts Festival on 26th September. You can read it in full here.
A feature length movie based on Mary’s true life story will be released in 2015. This focuses on the magical story of Mary’s journey to build a gold medal winning garden at the Chelsea flower show. Click through for information and stills from the film.
