Irish Award winning Artist, welcomes you to her site

Gloria Perry’s studio is nestled between the Donegal Hills and Rolling Tyrone landscape where she lives with her husband, family and lots of farm animals. These peaceful surroundings inspire her to produce bespoke textile sculptures for home and garden. An experienced Art & Design teacher of almost 30 years Gloria’s energy and enthusiasm for sharing her passion with others is infectious.

Gloria firmly believes that everyone can be creative. Once retired from teaching, the challenge and interest to develop her own creative business was realized when she found a revolutionary textile hardener – internationally recognized, Paverpol. As Paverpol’s sole distributor across Ireland, check out her recent work in her art gallery or her articles on  Lastest News page.

Over the years, Gloria has successfully created, designed and implemented an inspiring range of workshops. Let her take you on your own dream journey to ‘Awaken the artist within YOU’ on one of her interactive workshops on public courses, business programmes, school and government projects or  women’s groups.

Creativity is at the heart of Urney Creations, everything Gloria designs and creates is a truly unique piece of art which is inspirational, personal and has often being called ‘magical’ gifts for  home, office, special occasion or even a gift for yourself or treasured gift voucher  for someone special.

She can take you on this creative route, so dare to be different and make new friends along the way.

    Hi Gloria, I have recently discovered Paverpol and very excited to use it. I assume your not carting out workshops during the pandemic … your work is amazing and I’d live to learn how to do it. My sister who lives in Donegal would also like to. I’m in Lusk Co Dublin. I love crafting and I do pebble art and recently started to work with cement which I love. Hope to attend one of your workshops when things settle down.
