Throughout lockdown, we have really seen how valuable arts and culture are to our lives, and how necessary they are, and will be, to help us interpret what we all have been through. Minister for Culture, Heritage & the Gaeltacht, Josepha Madigan has just announced €25 million in supports to help the arts and culture sector through the Covid-19 emergency, thanks in no small part to @campaign4arts 🎉 New York Magazine’s senior art critic Jerry Saltz claims we have now gone back in time, circa 1991 when “really great art” was being made, proclaiming this special moment in time as a renewal of artistic talent across the world, believing now is the time for powerful and critical art to emerge. So, at a time when every day presents a new context to use the word ‘unprecedented’, why not make your own contribution to arts and culture unprecedented? There are already many examples of interesting people doing interesting things, who you can support. Read more on @IMAGE.ie #linkinbio thank you @danielholfeld for including my work in the article.

New work Ella, revisiting the incredible landscape of Sri Lanka. Magnificent mountains rolling down toward the roaring coastline, shaded quiet lagoon inlets shrouded by lush tropical jungle. Collaging my original photographs taken on location, adding pencil and paint to the final work. This was started during lockdown and finally finally it is now available across all platforms from this weekend.
Head over to @degreeart for my instagram takeover with interview and pics with Degree Art. 'I work on several pieces at the same time, a botanical, a collage, a still, a landscape and I move between them all. Picking up inspiration from each of them. When I get blocked with one I move to the next. For me it is important not to get bored or frustrated, this way of working keeps things fresh. It is exciting to see how they develop, I never know which will complete first' see more @degreeart Happy Friday feeling
Creating colourful art in these surreal times. I am surrounding myself with botanicals, with colour and magical travelled landscapes. I can't get out so I will bring them in, like this one from the Amazon in Brazil. These are my flower and cacti photographs, taken on various locations from desert dunes to shaded gardens, jungles and reserves which are colaged and reimagined. Part of the Botanical Cactus series. Titled Cactus Trees is made on acrylic dibond and paper, available across all platforms. Whatever you do, do not stare at blank empty walls, unless you like doing that, then do that. DM If you wish to visit the studio and stare at full walls.
This view has the most resonance for me of all the seascapes. We use major events as markers in our lives, a move, a new job, the illness or death of a loved one, this piece was made after the severe illness of my partner. I had a couple of days away with my sister, I needed the quiet, the reassurance of my sister and the embrace of the sea.
