2022 Falter. Check. Resolve Studio 12 Backwater Artists Group Cork
In Autumn 2022, I had a solo show in Studio 12, Backwater Artists Group, Cork; an installation of impossibly contorted ceramic horses, eighteen Beckett ‘Chess Piece’ drawings and a piece of text (a description, or a memory, of having played chess in a mental ward) on the wall. The ‘Chess Piece’ drawings are absurd in that all of the chess pieces depicted are horses, a tribute to the spirit of Beckett, in whose novel Murphy, the hero plays chess in a lunatic asylum.
2018 Seven. The Guesthouse Cork
In December 2018, I exhibited three series of works: 7 Chess Piece (all of the pieces are horses) drawings (mixed media on Ingres paper), 7 Dead Flower drawings (pencil and graphite aquarelle on watercolour paper on Ingres paper) and 7 Objects Observed: seven oil on canvas painting accompanied by a text in letter form.

Born in Dublin in 1971, my son was born in 1990 - my work is about being a single mother, a woman. Often drawing on literature, I make work which concerns itself with trauma and joy - the joy of making.
