BA Art and Design (Distiction) 2015, GMIT
GMIT Academic Achievement Award 2015.
"My work is an exploration of contemporary landscape, figurative and narrative painting very much influenced by feminism and environmentalism.
As an expressive painter I’m passionate about the physical act of paint application and the relationship between colours and gestural brush strokes often varying the application of thin and thick paint. The work is often an emotional response to the landscape and personal life experiences which evolve sometimes into abstracted depictions spontaneously painted with usually no planned, preliminary work done beforehand. I allow the paint to dictate the beginning of each painting and use my imagination when it comes to the subject matter."
