Artist Bio

I am a Cork born artist. I received a BA Honours degree in Fine Art from Crawford College of Art and Design in Cork City, and a Postgraduate Diploma from Goldsmiths University in London. I have exhibited extensively and a number of my works are in both private and public collections.

Artist Statement

My work centers on the notion of what is a home. It is an exploration of that which is most emotive, where is it that we belong, and how can we, in this modern state of upheaval, find our safe place. The paintings query if it is the presence of people that turn a house into a home, and what it says about our community when there are houses left empty.My work centres on the notion of what is a home.

Currently I am incorporating three dimensional elements into my work, physically building the scene behind stretched canvas and treating it then as a traditional painting. It is an experimental look at the spaces we occupy.
