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.
