I am a visual artist who draws inspiration from forgotten or lost knowledge; interspecies communication and language; hidden narratives and memory.
Artist’s books are my principal medium. Through them, I bring together diverse elements such as print, collage and participatory events, weaving multiple strands together.
My eco-feminist practice seeks to create connections with slower, older ways of being. I enjoy working collaboratively, often bringing people together to focus on social and ecojustice issues.
In 2022, I was awarded a Visual Arts Bursary from the Arts Council of Ireland to further develop my practice.
My art practice is multilayered and multifaceted – both in terms of the media used and the ideas brought together. Artists’ books provide an experimental form to consolidate these ideas.
I have been working collaboratively with children, young adults and adults for 20 years, facilitating projects and workshops in bookbinding, zine-making, printmaking, collage, animation, mask-making, willow and upcycling.
