|Limerick, Limerick, Ireland
|Limerick based artist whose work investigates themes of identity and public persona through the media of photography and painting. I am a visual artist based in Contact Studios Limerick. The concerns addressed in my work are my own perspective and interest in the role and status of women in society in the 1950s. The aesthetic and culture of that period have strong visual resonances for me. Found or family photographs, from an archive of photographs I have built up over many years, are the source material for many of my paintings. I also use photography to address more contemporary subjects in my practice.
