Bríd is based in North Clare and has worked with several community music and community art projects with intercultural, women’s and senior citizens groups, often culminating in a performance or an exhibition. She creates silk paintings for commission and combines silk painting with personal/ natural objects to create a series of story boxes which illustrate a certain place or memory. This was primarily inspired by an item she made depicting emigration, for the Museum of Country Life, Co. Mayo. This work was expanded through facilitating a group to explore and express the meaning of home through art and textiles, which culminated in an exhibition. She has recently completed a course in ‘Eco-literacy for the Arts’ and plans to bring elements of this course into her work and workshops.
