Born in Dublin, I now live and work in London. I completed an M.A. in Clinical Psychology before going on to study Fine Art in Barcelona and London. My work is held in numerous private collections and I have sold on Saatchi online. Inspired by Marshall McLuhan’s phrase, “The medium is the message”, I use a range of materials including textiles, embroidery, ceramics and wire to explore the themes of motherhood, separation and loss, the idea of remaking self in the face of loss, and issues of home and belonging. Psychological themes are a major part of my art practice. I currently teach textiles and sculpture and am head of SEN at The Art Academy, London.
