"As a visual artist I have always used my camera as a tool in my practice of painting; going outdoors to record images that may become the basis for a painting.
In 2014 I upgraded my old camera to a new digital SLR and needed tuition on its use. I was awarded an ArtLinks Professional Development Bursary 2014 and completed a nature photography course at the Burren College of Art. I learned more photography skills taking workshops at the Galley of Photography Dublin- which I attended with support from an ArtLinks Professional Development Bursary 2015. I am now utilising my camera more confidently and am using photography as a new medium in my practice. I have had my first photography exhibition, To Sleep, in BANK Studios Dungarvan in August 2015."
