Jim McNaughton/Tile Style Artist Bursary: Business to Arts 2015 / by Maire Carroll

Last Tuesday, September 1st, I was delighted to be a recipient of the Jim McNaughton/Tile Style Artist Bursary 2015 at this year's Allianz Business to Arts Awards. The ceremony saw some of the biggest names from the worlds of business and arts gather at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre in Dublin where Minister for Arts, Heritage & the Gaeltacht, Heather Humphreys TD, was guest of honour.

I am incredibly honoured and excited to have received this bursary and would like to thank Business to Arts and Tilestyle for helping me continue to pursue my dream of becoming an international concert pianist. I look forward to many spectacular creative partnerships ahead!
