Being a native of Donegal, the sea has always been a strong presence in the qualities I bring when crafting with glass. Depth and density of water, the blending sea blues looking up, to the stretching arches and shapes of fishing boats all have played influence on my visual language.

Nature is a consistent source of inspiration, and always offers me a new colour to explore or texture to investigate. It’s these elements that influence my choice of soft colour bleeding and blending found in seascapes, or the dramatic sharp lines seen in landscapes. Scale is another quality I use to mirror the overwhelming sensations of vast expanses of sea and land.
