Artist Statement
Working with my body in the natural landscape, my work deals with themes of the self and place, with the location of rural Ireland, in particular the Waterford countryside in which I grew up. My photographic practice examines my cultural heritage and my own personal history and how that affects how I navigate through everyday life. Featuring predominantly traditional analogue  black and white photographic processes.  I place weight on the process of the creation of each piece, acknowledging that  the creation of each piece is in itself a performance.
