Profile

 

I was born in 1970 and have lived in Dublin for all of my life.  In 1994, I graduated from the National College of Art and Design with a Degree in Craft Design.  From the following year, I have worked in my Dublin studio creating ceramic figures, busts and masks.  However, I have also created acrylic paintings on canvas and board along with drawings in various media.

I have participated in many exhibitions including ‘Sculpture In Context’ held annually in the Botanic Gardens, Dublin and have sold my work in a variety of craft shops aimed at the tourist market.

Over the years, I have explored issues such as global warming, terrorism and extremism in producing my work.  My intention was to raise debate about these issues rather than preach or propose a particular viewpoint.  I gain my inspiration from images created by other artists, the media, the movie industry and any other visual material.

Since 2010, I have been exploring peoples’ fascination with the aftermath of an accident or other incident.  I want to open debate about whether or not all the mages of carnage we see on the internet and other media has desensitised us other people’s suffering.  To focus on the phenomenon of rubbernecking, I have begun to produce giant eyeballs rather than busts.
