We were overjoyed at being nominated for this award but to actually win it is amazing!
Urney Creations was an idea in my head after over 30 years teaching Art & Design in a local Secondary School – which just goes to prove there is life after retirement!
I had a passion to set up my own business but it was only a dream at that stage. Fast forward 10yrs and we are very proud of being the Sole Distributor of Paverpol in Ireland North and South.
We have a very active e-commerce site and facilitate workshops Nationwide.
My commissioned pieces are found Locally and Internationally.
It has been some journey!! Yet none of this would have happened if not for the loyal support and encouragement of my family, friends and of course all of YOU who strive in your own individual way to ‘Awaken The Artist Within!’
Creativity is more important now than ever, and is only going to get more valuable as time goes on and technology grows.
It’s the way of living that embraces originality and makes connections in your own unique way!
May I congratulate Strabane Chamber of Commerce for organising such a wonderful Celebrations Awards Night – it sure was one to remember!
