Concern about the impact we humans are having on the planet and the future for my grandchildren ostensibly influence my work.  Ecosophy ~ living well with ourselves, our places, and others, and biophilia ~ drive my practice.  Working within the Symbiocene narrative, informed by current ecological science, my practice is engaged with interconnectedness, mutualism, and the relational turn.  Concern about the ecological crisis and ecocide is intrinsic,  from an optimistic perspective. Many people see the flaws of hegemonic world systems and innately strive to live more mutualistically. #symbiocene 

Current lines of investigation include biodiversity, extinctions,  the communication and symbiotic systems of trees and other plants, rhythm, balance and cycles, the body as microbiome (intriguingly, 97 percent of our human and non-humans bodies consist of the same elements as stardust); and dust ~ what it comprises and how it looks under various microscopes. 

Hybrid, conceptual installation art best describes my practice.  In addition to my studio practice based in Laois, collaborations are an indispensable part of the process, whether with beekeepers or advanced photonics experts, working with professionals from diverse fields sparks creativity and invariably drives the research down unexpected paths.  While drawing is where every idea takes form, screen based works including holography, photography, and video are important aspects, created using Adobe CC and Maya.  Haptics ~ materials and sounds also feature in some works, while olfactory stimulation is an aspect I have experimented with and would like to expand upon. Pre-used, found, repurposed, and recycled matter are invariably present as I avoid using brand-new raw materials unless they are renewable and earth friendly.
