Born in Ireland

Working in the areas of collage, print and textiles.

Paper collage is at the core of my art practice. I am drawn to its immediacy and spontaneity. The collages ultimately take form in other mediums such as textiles and digital prints. Natural History, Victorian imagery and tales with anthropomorphic themes are a constant source of inspiration for me. I meld together traditional collage techniques with distortion, turning things upside down bringing the beautiful and ugly together, through this various birds, beasts and flora reoccur throughout the work. They are sliced up, scaled up and morphed together to create strange and unexpected hybrids.
