Since that time I have continued to develop an individual visual vocabulary. Living in the west of Ireland one learns that every form has a unique identity and story: fields, cliffs, spring wells, sea waves, trees, people, animals. The world is processed through the lens of narrative.
My paintings layer personal and cultural symbols inspired by communal histories, religious icons, landscape and architectural ruins. My practice, influenced by my art history background, employs a research-based approach. Resonating with beauty, mystery and lyricism are undercurrents of a witty acuity in representations of life; its myriad narratives, struggles, past and present.
