Welcome to Foxglove Lane Studio, named for the wild foxgloves that grow along our lane during the summer months. I'm Catherine Drea; contemplative photographer, award winning blogger and facilitator. I live and and work in rural County Waterford, Ireland.

The Foxglove Lane Blog has won four awards for photography in the Irish Blog Awards. A labor of love, every week for the last 6 years, I share a new photostory.
