Some of the studios have been finished to a very high standard with double glazing, timber floors and ceilings and spot lights. To the rear of the property is an old raised orchard with herb garden and an array of cottage garden plants that stimulates the senses and is home to the many birds throughout the year.
A separate double studio with stone arch doorway, double industrial sink, benches with power stations etc. is used for all plaster work, clay modelling, wax moulding and finishing of metal work for all sculpture purposes. This building has an outside yard space for stonework.

Henry McGrane – www.henrymcgrane.ie
He is an artist inspired by nature. This is reflected by his many scenes of rural life. His landscapes of cattle grazing capture the peace and tranquility and at time magical imaginary, that reflects well the rich landscapes and lush pastures of his homeland in Co. Meath. His keen powers of observation can capture many rural scenes that arefast disappearing; yet he has managed to capture them in his paintings. His ouvre is not limited to outdoor scenes. His work can be intensely personal yet versatile as can be seen in his large works of the human figure and more recent still life studies. Henry studied art in Dun Laoghaire College of Art and Design. He started working with O’Sullivan Bluth Animation in Dublin. He went to Phoenix, Arizona in 1995, where he worked for 20th Century Fox Studios. He furthered his career whilst in Arizona by studying oil painting under the tuition of renowned American artists.
