About the maker:
Growing up and living in Northern Ireland influences my work greatly, I use simple materials, found in nature and in industry like Pebble’s, worn bricks or trees as a starting point. Each one, symbolic of a different time or emotion in my life. Through the exploration of these materials, I am trying to show a sense of growth, embellished evidence of a story of what conditions they have survived. The weathered state of these materials wood, pebble or brick I feel show great resilience and character.
