Bachelor of Arts Photography with Video, University of Ulster
New Generation Gallery
My inspiration is obtained through the human condition and surroundings that affect my own and others cognitive behaviour. The work derives through my suggestive and intuitive traits. Light is an important element that manifests throughout my images, it allows me to portray my interest in cinema with the intent to create an atmospheric aesthetic and to enhance my visual language. I graduated from Ulster University achieving a first class honours in Photography with Video in July 2022 and have recently finished one year of international studies at Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, situated in Budapest. I was awarded a place on the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences executive Dean's List for the year 2018-2019. In June 2022 I became one of five recipients of the inaugural RADAR Research and Development Artist Residency for PhotoIreland.
