Geological formations are both inspiring and humbling and I find myself drawn to the patterns and shapes found within these formations in our natural environment. Recent research has led to the documentation of stone circles and ruins of sacred places and to their role as both physical and historical markers in the landscape. The work seeks to explore their relationship with the man-made structures and technology which inhabit these environments and the tensions between these two conflicting structures.

I am a multidisciplinary artist and graduated with first class honours from the Crawford College of Art and Design in 2015. Both private and public collectors including CIT Registrars collection have purchased my work and I have participated in a number of exhibitions to date. For my degree show I was selected as ‘Student of the Year” by the Cork Art Society and awarded an exhibition by the Lavit Gallery Cork. Other prizes included the CIT Science Week Award, which resulted in a solo exhibition , ‘Drawing in New Light’ at the James Barry Gallery, a CIT Purchase Prize and a post grad resident CCAD award 2015. I was also awarded a 12-month residency with Backwater Artist’s Group. I am currently a member of Cork Printmakers and I have a project space with Backwater Artists Group until July 2020.
