2011 BA (honours) in Fine Art, Crawford College of Art and Design, Cork, Ireland.


I see my work as painting with the camera using a mix of traditional and contemporary methods of the photographic printing process. My tools are pinhole cameras, digital cameras, scanners as well as smart-phone screens, film, print collage, and photograms. The resulting images, taken from present day subjects, evoke a sense of nostalgia about past that never was. But I have to add that I do painting as well and it is interesting to me to see the difference in subject matter between photographic process and painting as final products.
