Born in Dublin, 1975, lives and works in New York.

The drawings and sculpture acknowledge the sysyems that different societies have used in the never-ending search to understand, catalogue and control nature and the world around us. I am intrigued by the absurdity of this inherently futile endeavor. Recurring issues include environment, weather, growth, dependency, home, bubbles, disaster, sickness, failure, natives, non-natives, change, mitigation, adaption.
