For me creating art is a catalyst for change: I see it as a part of bigger creative processes. Studying and working as an architect sketching, painting, drawing, model-making, listening, communicating, researching, analysis and presenting are an intrinsic part of the process of creating a building. I have always loved the diversity of this process. I was feeling really stuck in my life a year ago and I was curious to see what would happen if I painted every day. I followed my curiosity and starting with painting abstract chaotic images, then became fascinated with lines and gold ink and I found myself being inexplicably drawn to the wildness of West Cork where I painted the water and most recently my paintings have been informed by the wild landscape around Garinish. You can see some of these paintings here.
‘Lets Create Better Ways of living’ – In October 2016 I started a two year journey exploring eco-village life: living and working in Eco-villages around the world and sharing my experiences as a way of inspiring positive creative change in peoples lives. I lived by exchange and for travel expenses: I sold paintings, ran a crowd funding campaign and kept a blog about my experiences.
