I was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1975. My family is from the Ballyshannon on the Irish border. I grew up between the Republic of Ireland, UK, and Northern Ireland. I now live in Sheffield, UK.

I am interested in how investigations of aesthetics, subjectivity, territories, and politics can be generative in figuring out how we live with other humans and non-humans. I do this with the collective ; a place of their own. through performance, installations, rituals, sound, text and assemblages.

I have a PhD ‘Art, Maternal and Matrixial Encounters’ (University of Sheffield, 2013).
