My Story

Inspiration often comes from nature. I love wide spaces whether it be the fields outside my window in beautiful Kinsale, a hard won mountain top panorama or a dive in clear tropical water. The light and colour of such scenes bring me joy that I’d like to share. I aim to bring a little happiness and a reminder of a fantastic world into the lives and homes of others. I often return to Batik. As a wax resist textile medium, colour is locked in as soon as wax is added. It’s a boost of energy adding lots of colour quickly, especially when working on larger pieces. I also work in felt, mixed media, cyanotype and for smaller pieces I enjoy etchings too. Learning the restrictions of various techniques and working with or around them for my desired outcome means I’m engaged and invested in each piece.
