I am an artist based in Wexford Town and have studied at Wexford School of Art and at IADT. I have worked on community-based projects in Dublin, Wexford and Waterford and have exhibited in Wexford, Waterford, and Dublin and have video work shown in Mexico, Cambodia and Morocco.

In my art practice I use drawing and film to explore how art can be a process of personal social and professional development. I have worked with community groups and collaborated on murals with a Traveller Inclusion programme in Enniscorthy and on community projects in Wexford Town. I was also  a member of Creative Communities Panel with Wexford County Council until 2021 where my most recent project was working in collaborating with Access 2000 Woman’s Group Wexford in creating a book of reminisces and photographs about growing up in Wexford. I have also worked with the Elephant Collective on Picking Up the Thread. A multi-media touring exhibition to commemorate and highlight the women who have died in our maternity services and the need for legislation to ensure an automatic inquest following all maternal deaths.

More recently, I was invited to take part in Games for Artists and Non-Artists online in 2021. A collaborative project in association with IMMA. And in 2022 to participate in peripheriesMEET a  correspondence programme and exhibition in association with Periphery Space Gorey.

Previously I have contributed articles and reviews to Circa and VAI of which I am a member. I have been involved with Wexford Documentary Film Festival, beginning in 2014 where I curated a screening of local Wexford based film makers and artists. I became a permanent member in 2017. I was a co-founder and director of Studio Nine/Wexart an artist led organisation based in Wexford Town where I developed an interest in artist led projects.

Since 2019 my art making has changed to a more personal and process led practice where I am using drawing, sometimes combined with film as a way of looking at my own personal experience and feelings. While I enjoyed working on community projects I felt my own ideas and needs for making art were not been fully realised and since 2019 this has become the main direction for my art practice. This shift was precipitated by my own personal experience of becoming older and dealing with illness combined with a more critical awareness of my emotional and physical environment. During the recovery process from a serious health issue, I began to use drawing as part of my convalescence and realised that this was an opportunity to take stock of where I was as an artist and as someone who is also getting older. In addition, I believe this focus on a personal and more process led way of making art has brought a new impetus to my art practice. I have always been interested in how visual language and images inform our view of the world we inhabit. I believe we all have within ourselves a sort of memory bank of images consisting of our own personal history and from the wider culture and am interested in how such images can affect the way we see the world and how we construct meaning and memory of events both private and public from them.
