“An Irish multi-disciplinary artist based in the south of Ireland. My personal practice spans a wide range of mediums depending on the project but primarily I work in collage and ceramics. Last year in an ongoing collaboration with another artist, Dervla Baker, I began making sculptures from plastic bottles. This was originally an event decor project, plastic was a readily available free material, but by collecting (just) bottles and seeing how quickly we acquired a vast amount of them, we started becoming aware of the true extent of the plastic problem. And now our focus is to use plastic as material to create work that highlights the impact of it on the environment and the vast amounts of it created, used and thrown away every day.”
