I am a visual artist, originally from Limerick, now living in Galway on the West Coast of Ireland.
The main sources for my work are in the observations and occurrences of daily life.
I like to use domestic processes to respond to these daily events, therefore I very often incorporate drawing, paint, collage and stitch in my work. The co-existence of various media in my art gives me a sense of ease.
Amongst the many artists whom have influenced me, I draw much of my practice from Henri Matisse, Lee Krasner, Francis Davison, Anne Ryan, Frederick Hammersley, Louise Bourgeois.
Alongside my own art, I teach design, graphics, textile printing, embroidery & collage techniques
to adult learners in Galway City.
I have a husband, three daughters and two cats.
