I am a Northern Ireland based artist working with new media and technology, site-specific installation and durational performance. I am a recent recipient of the Arts Council of Northern Ireland Individual Digital Evolution Award. I represented Ireland at Estudio Abierto, Buenos Aires, South America’s leading contemporary arts festival. My current interests are in exploring impermanence as it relates to environmental, end of life, and Northern Ireland post-conflict legacy issues.
Collaborating with groups and organisations as a facilitator/advisor allows me to set up programs for longer term consultation that are safe spaces for collaboration and co-creation. Working across site-specific and community contexts on a wide range of arts and creativity projects gives me access to people, situations, and places I wouldn’t normally encounter.
I am motivated by the belief that the arts can shape society, address universal suffering and environmental sustainability while supporting social change.
Prior to returning to full-time fine art education as a mature student, I worked in telecommunications industry in Ireland and overseas in engineering and management roles.
