Her work has been exhibited in group shows in Dublin and the United States. In Northern Ireland, her work has been selected for inclusion in the Royal Ulster Academy’s Annual Exhibition. She is a member of Black Church Print Studio, Dublin and the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland. Among her qualifications, she holds undergraduate degrees from UMass, Amherst, The National College of Art and Design (NCAD), Dublin, and a masters degree in LIS from University College Dublin (UCD).

Artist Statement: Inspired by the essence of energy around us – the life force of the landscape – she crafts photopolymer plates using her own un-retouched photographic images, creating traditional handmade multi-plate nature prints. Her images capture nature’s simple beauty – especially that found in open spaces, such as parks and fields, near water or high in the hills, around the island of Ireland and on the east coast of America.
