From an early age I discovered my love of drawing and painting. When I was three I loved colouring in, at age ten I loved to create using my hands. I wasn't very good in secondary school, an average student I found myself lacking in academic strength but enjoyed sketching and painting. After receiving my Leaving Certificate in 2002 from St. Dominics College, Cabra, I realised I wanted to attend further education in art, craft and design.
In 2003, I found a good post leaving cert. course in Liberties College, Bull Alley in Dublin where my passion for metalworking, photography, and calligraphy were discovered. I gained a merit from this year of study. But it was only after several years that I came upon the idea of studying art and design at a diploma level.
In 2010 I studied another post leaving certificate course at Ballyfermot College Of Further Education and earned myself a Fetac level 5 in Art and Three Dimensional Studies. Now I had a good footing to access the diploma course in textile design at the Ballyfermot College.
By this stage I felt a kind of artistic hunger for learning more about ways of producing art. I had discovered how to print intaglio, work with clay, silk screen print and develop photography.......Yet I yearned to learn more. It was then in 2011 that I really started to explore my creativity on the HND Diploma in Textile Fiber Art. On this course I fell in love with a new form of art.... Sculpture. I excelled on this course and gained much experience in ceramic techniques, life drawing, fine art print, slr photography, printed textiles and fiber manipulation. I graduated in 2013 and held a end of year group show with my class called 'Barking Dog' held at Avenue Road Gallery, Dublin 8.
In 2015 I was diagnosed as having a benign brain tumour. After treatment I now have reduced vision but an increased passion for life........ And art!
