I am a visual artist working in the areas of drawing and painting. I was born in Wicklow, grew up in Kerry and now live on the Cork/Waterford border area.
I have studied animation in Ballyfermot Senior College, Dublin and Drawing in St. John’s College in Cork. I am a graduate of the Crawford College of Art and Design, Cork graduating with a B.A. (Honors) in Fine Art. My background as a trained musician is a vital inspiration and stimulus in my art making; I am an All Ireland winning Irish harpist having performed and toured in Australia and played in the National Concert Hall, Dublin. I have also trained as an acupuncturist and practitioner of Chinese Medicine, completing my studies in Dublin and Nanjing, China.
Painting and drawing is an embodied practice for me and is informed by over twenty years of meditation and reflection in the Vietnamese Zen Tradition. My paintings are held in public and private collections in Ireland and Berlin.
