Artistic Profile:
I am interested in the Irish cultural and environmental landscape, how objects and images from the past embody cultural memory and characterize the future. A member of the Leinster Printmaking Studio, (L.P.S), Co Kildare, and of the Photography Institute, I work in a variety of media including photography, video, painting and printmaking. This allows me to select the medium/media most appropriate to the logic of each project. I  recently coordinated Irish Artists participating in ‘Le Chéile’, a collaboration in print between LPS and a print studio in Wrexham, North Wales. The project toured venues in Ireland, Wales and Sth Australia, 2010-12.
