I presently live in the French Pyrenees, and naturally this imposing landscape is becoming an influence in my work, not only through subject, but also scale. Previously, in Dublin, I executed private/public commissions, personal pieces for gallery exhibition and competition where I was privileged to receive numerous awards.
I am fascinated by the visual qualities of glass: the interplay between colour, light and translucency and also the sense of movement within thick bodies of glass. Inspired by natural, organic and modular forms, my sculptures arise from memories or feelings associated with some event or experience. The journey of each, from first sketches through to working on the piece itself, allows me to process the thoughts and feelings that were their initial inspiration.
