Since completing my BA HONS degree in Fine Art Sculpture at St Martin’s College of Art & Design in London I have continued to develop a professional practice. In 2004 I completed a MFA at the University of Ulster. Throughout this time I have been invited to run workshops, give tutorials and talk about my practice at a number of galleries and third level institutions throughout Ireland, Europe, and the USA.
Over the last number of years I have been exploring issues relating to the impact of human induced climate change. I am interested in the potential of science, philosophy, and aesthetics to enrich my thinking on issues related to climate change and international policies in order to produce work that keeps our attention focused on what’s going on in the environment.
My practice does not lie within any one discipline but instead embraces a variety of media and techniques. This has included audio, animation, video, photography, performances, and public interventions; acting as a facilitator in developing collaborative projects with a wide variety of participants and, more recently, producing large site-specific sculptures and installations.
As an artist, I am particularly interested in participatory and collaborative forms of artistic practice. Currently I am the Artist-in-Residence at the UCD Earth Institute. This is a collaborative project with the Earth Institute, Parity Studios and Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Biodiversity office.
