The inspiration for my artwork derives from political issues specifically referring to the North of Ireland conflict. My work is mixed media textiles, working small and large-scale to create 2D and 3D artworks that represents the historic, contemporary, political and religious outlook of the North's struggle within a contemporary contexts. My work pushes the boundaries of art & design by utilising conventional art-making materials and processes. This is fundamental to the production of the work as paper, fabric, acetate and steel are key to conveying ideas relating to transience, fragility and damage; as a method of recording the emotions and reactions to the conflict.
