“I was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, where I earned a national diploma in Fine Art (major in drawing) from DLSAD (now IADT) Dublin. Living in the USA I earned an Associate degree summa cum lauda in Fine Arts (Studio) at CNM, Albuquerque, New Mexico. I graduated from the University of New Mexico summa cum lauda with a BFA in Art Studio (printmaking) and a minor in Psychology. In my artwork I utilize a variety of mediums, including painting, drawing, and printmaking.
Having started over more than once, the need to adapt to new environments has clarified my concept of home. I believe that the land we know as children becomes imprinted on us and shapes who we become so that regardless of where we travel, we carry home, culture, and our history within us. At this point in my life I am returning to my roots, my family, and the community that helped form me as an artist.
