LIVE OFF THE LANDSCAPE, 2022
Through extensive research into the history and values of my ancestors, I found myself drawn to and actively engaged in slow living informed by inherited practices. I have access to native Irish plants, working with the seasons to harvest natural dyes, scientifically alter the PH and colour, spin yarn and weave from what grows in my garden. Deriving from this practice, I have also been inspired to make bio-plastic alternatives to unsustainable plastic buttons and cutlery using a range of ingredients with seaweed.
SEASCAPE OIL PAINTINGS
I create oil paintings of dramatic seascapes in the Irish Sea. I replicate crashing waves, glimmering reflections, grey clouds and bright sunrises in this growing body of work.
PREVIOUS STUDIO PROJECTS
A collection of projects produced during my time at the National College of Art and Design. My work has almost always been inspired by my local landscape and referenced sustainability.
