My work is inspired by where I live in East Clare and the beautiful forests and surrounding landscapes. Whenever I go out into the forest, I feel a sense of grounding as I am surrounded by nature and its beauty. Nature frees me from all life problems, and when looking around on my walks in the woods, I concentrate on the “self”. Through investigating nature, I am compelled to understand the symbiotic relationship where all species involved benefit from their interactions. This helps me to reflect on my role and purpose of being.My sculptural pieces have been prompted by several influences. One is my belief that many of us have lost our natural sense of home. My pieces have become an emotional landscape for me and reflect the human connection with nature. I work with black clay and incorporate found objects and materials that I find on my walks. In the forest the colours are vibrant, the sounds of nature nourish the soul and serenity calms the busy mind. Here we are reminded that beauty is not about perfection, but the beautifully imperfect, and our power lies within embracing all that we are, unconditionally.
