I am a Northern Irish artist interested in what shapes us and our habitats, responding to places as sites of history and re-imaginings.

Our histories are stories we are told and those we tell ourselves about our histories. When my internal store connects with the external surroundings, there is a resonance of some kind of truth. I know….. all truth is contingent but I’m with Martha Rosler:
“…there is more truth and there is less truth”.
Reclaimed materials can embody the scars of time, use and abuse. I like using them and the everyday object as a form of excavation, of resurrection, given a new energy charge in a different cultural context.
When possible I will incorporate materials traditionally held to have greater value to reflect both the sacred and the profane, the light and dark.
For me, the physical act of making is a renegotiation, a way of thinking, of reading the world and being more fully in it, and of bearing witness to my time and place.
