I am an interdisciplinary Artist based in the Irish midlands. I use a variety of media including ceramics, photography, drawing and found objects to communicate my ideas. I am interested in the emotional attachments we forge with objects that are around us because of their actual or perceived ability to transform or to heal. I document and explore ideas related to objects and sites that individuals or groups of people have imbued with value and meaning over time. These entities take on an emotionally supercharged layer of significance and become something more than their physical material weight. They have absorbed and now emit an energy that is very much real within the realm of human perception but cannot be measured using scientific methods. I attempt to represent this phenomenon as I experience it occuring in personal, domestic and wider cultural contexts.
