Artist Bio

I was born in West Cork in 1974, and studied at Grennan Mills Craft School and Glasgow School of Art, before receiving a BA and MA from the National College of Art and Design, Dublin in 1996 and 2009 respectively.
I established a professional practice in Dublin in 1999, creating commercial, public and commission artworks.

Growing up, I was surrounded by strong, independent, free thinking women, in sharp contrast to the American southern belle tradition that my mother grew up in. This has influenced my work greatly, with the female form being central to my artwork.

From being selected for the NCAD 250th exhibition in 1996, and representing Ireland in the Philadelphia Museum of Art Crafts Fair in 2004, I have exhibited at home and abroad, including the National Museum of Ireland, Gormelys Fine Art, RDS National Craft Awards, The Millcove Gallery and Farmleigh among numerous others.

Having exhibited in Sculpture in Context, Dublin on numerous occasions , I recieved the Large Sculpture of Distinction award in 2011, and was on the selection panel in 2012, as well as Chair of the Design Tower network for 2 years.

My work has been commissioned both publicly and privately, and collections include the OPW, Mason, Hayes and Curren and Limerick City Gallery, as well as numerous private collectors, from miniature ceramic busts to life size sculptures in clay, concrete and bronze.
