My practice is deeply influenced by my childhood in Northern Ireland. Growing up at the end of a conflict and in a country where peace was relatively new, my memories are filled with images of the beautiful country I was surrounded by, bomb scares and overhead helicopters are merely a distant memory. I strive to create work which reflects my home, pieces which evoke a sense of what it means to be Northern Irish. Pieces which are symbolic of both the country as well as its complex past.
