About

I am a multidisciplinary artist based in Cork City, working in printmaking, photography, installation and collaborative practice. My studio practice is based at Backwater Artists Group since 2017, the foremost professional studio facility in Cork City. I have been a full-time member of Cork Printmakers for 15 years, where I have been involved in a number of public and educational projects and with whom I have exhibited with internationally.

My work is concerned with perception of the image as means of communication. Within my work, I use systems of communications (Morse Code, symbolism, colour theory), multiple viewpoints and visual planes to challenge the experience of image consumption. This is achieved by reconfiguring images through digital imaging technologies and manipulating materials, incorporating my photographic and printmaking practice into 3-dimensional materials–wood, textiles and metal.

My practice is process-driven and informed by site-specific research, through travel and personal experience of engaging with social and political concerns. For me this is the core aspect of being an artist – to examine our physical world and society, to interpret, interrogate and disseminate ideas through creative practice.
