Description of practice/Biography

I’m a visual artist, mainly painting & drawing but I have recently started making jewellery to sell alongside my prints at markets etc. In 2016 I came in 4th place in the humour category of the America Arts Awards for my painting ‘Pig in a G-String’.
In 2017 I created artwork to become part of a published book of poetry ‘Bosom Pals’ – featuring women who have had experiences with breast cancer- alongside the National University Galway I helped to curate an exhibition with these works which then went on to exhibit at the NUIG gallery and became part of its private collection. We also went on to become part of Clifden Arts Festival 2018. I was delighted to recently have had a piece of mine accepted for the Leitrim Sculpture Centre ‘Summer Open’ Exhibition 2019. I’m hoping to find a studio space in the area and make a whole new series of works inspired by my new surroundings. I also hope to engage in more community projects with other artists and members of the public..
