I've never been to Northern Ireland and as I drew this land of green fields and beautiful forests I realised that I am missing out on discovering somewhere special. Often portrayed as a troubled region, Northern Ireland actually has a unique bucolic charm and the Ulster American Folk Park, which stocks products printed with my illustration of their outdoor museum in their shop, reveals the beauty of rustic architecture and industry.
The coastline is dotted with magnificent castles and pretty lighthouses, that shine out their light over the Atlantic Ocean and Irish Sea. The Titanic Museum, City Hall and a wall of peace mark the regional capital of Belfast, with the iconic building of Stormont featured nearby.
Local favourites include the Ulster Fry Up and Irish dancing and my design of Northern Ireland includes two little girls taking part in this age old, charming cultural tradition. Hello Northern Ireland!
