My creative process always leans into abstraction, from early work with pouring paint on canvas to current photographic work there is a continuing conversation that involves layering, light, texture and the places between.

My creative journey as an artist spans 36 years, beginning in 1980 in Dublin, Ireland where I studied fine art, painting, at the National College of Art and Design.I have had group and solo exhibitions in Canada exhibiting paintings and photography with a side trip to a New York art fair thrown in.
Looking back over 17 years exploring pathways through and around image taking to printmaking I know my personal journey has been to unlearn and let go of what a photograph should be.
What I know now, after all these years, is that I am deeply engaged by, and passionately focused on the process of image making. Be it working with a camera or flat bed scanner and large format printers.
A print series titled “Alchemy” evolved out of experimenting with found objects scanned to become photographic layers.
I approach working with a camera or scanner for image capture with intense curiosity. It is always a creative, collaborative encounter moment by moment with light as a lyrical, playful language. I leave room for the unexpected, the accident, the chance blending within the image making process for something that I have not seen before, that takes the image into new conversations.
