Project 2020


Hunt Museum Project

During early 2020 artists from the Contact Studio group contributed to a project with the Hunt Museum producing an activity pack for children who were unable to attend school at the time because of lockdown.  I made a simple line drawing for children to colour and, hopefully, get some inspiration from to make their own work too. 


2019 Exhibitions


Royal Ulster Academy 138th Annual Exhibition, Belfast

17th October 2019 to 5th January 2020.

This was my second time having work selected for the RUA which is always a thrill.  Two prints of  the sea were chosen for exhibition,  and while I didn’t get to the opening,  I did get to visit the show in Belfast while on a residency at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre in December. 

Works: Sea Window & The Pier




GOMA Waterford 4th Annual Members Exhibition

A painting titled 'Bindweed' was selected for this exhibition which ran from Thursday, December 12th 2019 to Sunday, January 12th 2020. An opening evening preview took place on Thursday, December 12th from 6.30 PM featuring live music with a wine reception.

Work on Show: Bindweed



Contact Studios ’On the Road’, Friarsgate,  Kilmallock, Co Limerick

1st to 29th November, 2019.  

 An exhibition of work by member of Contact Studios, Limerick. This sadly was the last show by Contact Members after the closure of our studio space.


 Circus Project with McCarthy Circus Archive

This Circus themed exhibition took place on the 10th  & 11th August 2019 at Cappamore Community Hall, and was run in conjunction with Cappamore Annual Show and a visit by the Circus to the village.  This exhibition celebrates the long connection between the Circus and McCarthy’s Bar in the village and showcased both the archive of material held by Tony McCarthy and artworks made by local artists in response to that Archive. I showed 2 artworks in the exhibition.  It was great to be part of an exhibition in the village where my studio was bases and to see so many of the local residents support the show.

Works on show: ‘Here come the Girls’ and ‘Circus’
