Hello! I'm Laura, and I'm thrilled to welcome you to The Barley Moon.

I am passionate about teaching mindful doodling as a tool, that everyone, no matter their age, can use in everyday life.

With a background in Applied Psychology from Durham University and a P.G.C.E from The University of Aberystwyth, I've always been fascinated by the human mind and how we connect with the world around us.

I’m passionate about art and using art as a healing tool;  I believe in the power of doodle art to bring calm and creativity to everyone, and I'm on a mission to share that magic with the world.

That's why I specialise in delivering engaging and transformative mindful doodling workshops, both in-person and online. Whether you're a seasoned doodler or just picking up a pen for the first time, my workshops are designed to inspire, relax, and ignite your creativity.

Beyond my work, I'm also a proud mum of two boys and three stepchildren. Nestled between Edenderry and Kinnegad in the picturesque County Meath countryside, I feel incredibly grateful to call this beautiful corner of the world home.

So whether you're here to explore mindful doodling, learn more about my workshops, or simply say hello, I'm so glad you've stopped by. Let's embark on this creative journey together!
