HELLO


I'm an Irish visual artist and my work looks at how we inhabit and imagine place. My background as an architect is central to my practice, which looks at the relationship between architecture as an intellectual concept, created through images, and it’s translation into built form. I'm particularly interested in the ideological aspect of inhabitation and the role of both architecture and photography in constructing the ideal.
