Cv/Track Record

In 2021, I had the honor of participating in TransCultural Mediation meetings with Mother Tongues, where I used my artistic skills to engage with diverse communities and increase mutual understanding between host communities and immigrants. This experience led to further collaborations with Mother Tongues, Rua Red, and The Hugh Lane Gallery on art-making projects with specific themes in 2021-22. These opportunities allowed me to expand my network and get involved in exciting projects that challenged me and enriched my artistic practice.

Recently, I was approached by Creative Places Athy to propose an engagement with existing community groups in Athy to create their manifesto, which was a rewarding and challenging learning process for me. Additionally, in 2022, I had a solo show at D-light Studio in Dublin, which was funded by CFCP and the Arts Council.

I am eager to continue exploring new artistic opportunities and would be thrilled to have the chance to showcase my work in Offaly.

Evocation of memories through art: nostalgia, celebrations, remembrances and importantly emotional connection to people, places and things can help ground and soothe a mind troubled by Dementia.

Sing and Sign - Children

The Kids' Fun and Adventure Manifesto:

  1. We believe that childhood should be a time of joy and adventure, filled with new experiences and memories.

  2. We want to see more outdoor activities like box fort building and trips to the skate park, where kids can let loose and have some fun!

  3. We think that gymnastics and balance should be a part of everyone's routine and what better place to practice than a skate park?!

  4. We believe that creativity should be encouraged and celebrated, so we want to see more opportunities for kids to express themselves through painting, face painting, and graffiti art.

  5. We think that gaming competitions and painting contests (with a wildlife theme, of course) are the perfect way to bring out the competitive spirit in kids.

  6. Our ultimate goal is to make sure that every kid gets to have a blast, so we'll stop at nothing to make sure that everyone gets to participate in all the fun and adventure they can handle!
