My artwork is a series of experiments

My artwork is layered

My artwork is full of color

My artwork glides across disciplines

My artwork is driven by wordplay

My artwork is this poem

I am a interdisciplinary visual artist, designer and adjunct art professor at Suffolk Community College. Born to Irish parents, I grew up in England. I make experimental projects using a variety of forms — social practice installations, paintings, poetry, videos, and photographic experiences.

My current series is about CHATbots and my intimate moments with them. My works build slowly. Even small works are repeatedly built-up, and layered until their fragile existence feels complete. Line, color, shape, and material build upon one another, and shapes repeat. I explore the relationship between pattern and layering, I am continuously concealing and revealing organic moments. My works are drawn from the language of abstraction, color theory, and the abstract expressionist movement to create works that are an unrestrained layering of patterns on patterns. I am interested in paint, photgrapghy, collage, installation and the magical intersection of life.
