Artist     Therapist

I’m an artist and therapist, and I’m passionate about creativity, making art, and supporting others to find their passion and true selves.

I moved from Dublin, Ireland to Australia in 2002 and now I live and work in the Blue Mountains to the west of Sydney.

What I do

Artist

  • I create 2 and 3 dimensional textile and mixed media art works.
  • Through my art I explore my responses and understandings of our world through texture, layers and colour.
  • I have an extensive background in fashion and costume, and this has formed my preoccupation with textiles. which are central to my art practice. To this, I add other mixed media and found objects.

Therapist

  • Art therapy, counselling, eco therapy.
  • I value diversity and equality and believe that each person has a unique strength and ability.
  • I support people to creatively explore their inner worlds to manage difficult periods in their life and achieve personal growth.
