Shifitng Sands

This is the work I am currently doing. It is essentially a research project and I am “sea-watching” – observing the way the water changes the sand, the composition of the sand, the movement of the sand, the marks left behind by the sea.

Pressed

Based in the idea of pressed flowers, this body of work is about Nature under pressure. I worked in the window space of New Art Studios in Mary’s Abbey, Dublin. Hanging in the window were three wild flowers pressed between two sheets of glass. As there was no paper to absorb the moisture the plants grew moldy and black over the course of the project. I drew them as they deteriorated.

Blanchardstown Walking

While on the Draiocht Residency, I made a regular walk around the Town Centre environs.  I kept a journal and log, with details of what I saw notated in words, maps and sketches.
