Visual artist working with photography, video, installation and sculpture. Member of Backwater Artists, Sample Studios and the National Sculpture Factory. Passionate about environmental sustainability, biodiversity and local food networks whilst sustaining a growing eco-social art practice using text, found objects, photography and video in the wild landscape of the Beara Penninsula in Southwest Ireland.
My work explores personal histories of invasion, famine and colonisation, interrogating the human/nature relationship of industry within the countryside whilst observing the constant movement and change inherent in a working landscape and decolonising the archive.
