Philomena Hearn, and her company Gallery 34 Ltd, bought the stock, and
later the company name, of Animal Awareness Ltd in May 2003. Philomena
has been a textile designer since leaving college in 1981. She started
her own company designing and printing T-shirts and lengths of silk in
1983, and has continued with this skill, running "Philomena Print" alongside
her gallery outlets first in Lampeter, MidWwales, then Aberaeron, also
MiWwales and now in Corwen, North Wales.
Philomena, and members of her family, are often at craft and trade shows
around UK and sometimes Europe. This has been Philomena's background
in the retail sector. This website is a further development of Gallery
Ltd for Animal Awareness and we are also attempting to bring all the
strings to Philomena's bow together with links to www.philomenaprints.co.uk and other sites that are closely associated to this particular project.
As the site develops we will also feature items to add to, or complement,
the animal themes. Philomena's hand painted ties with animal designs
of her own, such as sheep, pigs, cows etc. Hand painted glass with zebra
or tiger skin patterns, silk hats with jungle designs and so forth.
