Applied artist

Ballymena, Antrim


functionless tools, memory, consumption


£55 — £550


From my home in rural Northern Ireland I work with themes such as place, memory and connection to the land. My practice is personal, and deeply rooted in the landscape of my farming childhood. I work mostly in wood, metal and textiles, creating sculptural tools which provoke dialogue about the meaning and value of work and of manual skills.
