I’ve been lucky enough to focus on my own personal work full time the past few months, as the last year has been busy with great projects. I have designed a window for Brown Thomas on Grafton Street, had one of my prints acquired by the National Gallery of Ireland, painted a building for Waterford Walls festival and have made commissioned works for hotels.
Each job can be a new challenge and I enjoy making fine art prints in the studio as much as I do painting a building or working for an exhibition.
I am currently working on designing a pavilion for Design POP festival, which is taking place in Cork city centre from May 17 to 19. Six designers have collaborated with six food producers to highlight the wealth of design and food we have here in Cork. There is a diverse mix of artists and architects involved, so it’s looking to be a goodie! I am paired with Suzanna Melinn of Banana Melon Kitchen and we’ve been working on a nice concept that will tie in our design with the surrounding area outside the Crawford Gallery.
Six top designers will collaborate with six local food producers to create six pop-up installations across Cork City throughout the festival weekend along with events, talks, discussions and exhibitions - most of which are free of charge to access and enjoy.
