I was Artist in Residence in Draíocht, Blanchardstown from July 2013 to December. During that time, I worked outside, finding Nature in the Car Parks around the Town Centre. For the first few weeks I was watching insects and birds, and the number of bees enjoying the flowers among the hedges. I drew the insects and made imaginary ones from florists’ wire.

While I was on the Erasmus exchange in Manchester, I began this method of working.  I take walks, and document what I see in a notebook.  I take photos and make sketches, and collect random found items.

The notes are made in a map format, with written and drawn notations.
