I’m also deeply engaged in supporting community arts projects through my curation of creative visitor experiences and a variety of heritage, culture, and corporate initiatives across Ireland.

“I never knew how prints were made or anything about lithography. I can’t believe they did this in Antarctica. I’m a huge Shackleton fan and this is a completely different insight for me. This is fascinating. Thanks for demonstrating”

GROUPS WE WORK WITH

Community Arts Projects and Events

Art helps us express ourselves and connect with the world around us. It has the power to energise communities and the visitors who engage with them. That means we can use it to create a sense of place that generates local pride, attracts visitors, and encourages authentic and long-lasting connections. I use traditional skills and explore powerful stories across a variety of community settings to help groups unlock creative potential and fresh thinking for people of all ages.
