Born in Kerry in 1987, I am an Irish photographer, currently based in Edinburgh.

I am a founding member of G L U E Collective and have recently completed my studies at Edinburgh College of Art, University of Edinburgh, where I received a First Class Honours Degree in BA Photography.

Primarily, my work focuses on community based projects with a key interest in portraiture.  I use local residencies to create distinctive photographic projects.

Through my creative practice, I have been granted access to work with a range of different organisations through artist residencies; including Scottish Charities like Carr Gomm and Age Scotland. I have also recently completed a major body of work at a local Youth Club in Edinburgh, which ran over a two year period. This work, which was exhibited at my graduate Degree Show, resulted in my being selected by the Royal Scottish Academy to take part in the RSA New Contemporaries Exhibition 2016, as well as the Futureproof 2015 and Cream 2015: A Graduate Showcase Exhibitions. I have also been selected as the new Artist in Residence for The Mary Erskine School in Edinburgh, for the coming school year.

Running photographic workshops is another aspect to my work, where I aim to pass on some of my skills to people within the community in a fun environment. I was recently awarded funding from the University of Edinburgh to run workshops at Edinburgh College of Art for local children, who were able to come along and make some artwork of their own, which was a major success.
