Born Ireland, 1975. Now lives and works in Dublin. Exhibits mainly in London. Mainly a painter, the artist uses a variety of mediums including painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics and most recently photography has become important in her work. I'm interested in nature, meditation and the sea. I love to travel the world with my camera, scuba diving whenever possible.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
These minimal, geometric paintings are non representational, concerned with reductive colour and are a series.
The surfaces are built up through intense layering over time to achieve physical depth in the paintings.
The layers relate to the way in which layers are built up and worn down through the natural processes of time in nature.
This process also helps to create a sense of "Yugen" an Asian concept which means inexpressible depth or invisible beauty.
This idea arises from the Japanese aesthetic of Wabi - Sabi which describes the inexpressible beauty which things especially natural objects attain with the passage of time. It incorporates the idea of the beauty of imperfection and irregularity or roughness and avoids ornamentation in structure.
