I am a fibre artist based in Roscommon, Ireland. My inspiration comes from the landscapes and surroundings of my country studio.


I work in a variety of materials, paint, collage, mixed media - but my primary thought process is in fibres. I like to collect materials such as wool, rope, cotton, and twist and weave them together to form individual, original works of art.
