I use autoethnography as my primary form of research. Autoethnography involves using self-reflection and photography to explore anecdotal and personal experience, which is then connected back to wider cultural, political, and social meanings and understandings. I usually base the composition of my paintings on old magazine covers, records, posters and classical paintings, but changes the subject matter to relate to an event that has happened in my life. Common themes in my work include classical music and paintings, pop culture, and tongue-in-cheek humour. I paint on a range of surfaces including stretched paper, canvas and wood. My work is a means of transforming these commercial images into a fine art. I have had my work displayed throughout Ireland including the National Gallery, IMMA, and the Hugh Lane Gallery. Most recently, I have created public interventions on the Luas Green Line, Portobello and outside the Central Bank on Dame Street.
