I have a lifelong passion for drawing, painting and general mark-making activities and with a Masters in History of the Irish Revolutionary Period, UCC, as well as Journalism & New Media, CIT, I'm passionate about telling stories through various forms.
Over the last few years, I have been splashing colour on walls to create vibrant and fun street art pieces in Cork and beyond! Some have been solo projects while many more have been collaborations with community groups, sports clubs, schools, businesses, and others. I also facilitate art workshops for children and take part in classroom visits.
My history and journalism work includes written interviews, features, photography, and videos covering a wide range of topics which have been broadcast and published. Most notably, I produced a history documentary, Réabhlóid Choircaí, detailing the events of the 1916 Easter Rising in Cork which aired on Tg4.
I'm a Co-founder of street art and guerrilla gardening group, Mad About Cork. I have led many projects aimed at beautifying the city through community-led action. These include but are not limited to, transforming derelict spaces into urban gardens, leading volunteer meet-ups, creating street art across the city, organising Spring Clean-up days, 'Cycle and Plant' events, bat box building workshops, cycling street art tours, walking tours, live street art painting events, photography exhibitions, and much more!
In recognition of our work, Mad About Cork won a Lord Mayor's Community Award in 2019, while we were also nominated for a Pride of Place Award, and island award aimed at promoting relationships between communities north and south of the border in Ireland.
