Belfast-born and Dublin-based, my work explores place and identity, and I pursue autobiography and the illusory notions of home and belonging by examining others’ lives, liminal spaces and so-called ‘outsiders’. I am fascinated by urban gentrification and the contrast between the everyday and incongruous in our built environment. 

I draw inspiration from Irish photographers such as Paul Seawright and Anthony Haughey, Japanese photographers Daido Moriyama and Hosoe Eikoh, and film maker John T. Davis. I have studied and worked in Scotland, Egypt and Japan, am currently researching my PhD with Belfast School of Art in Ulster University.
