    The new collection is like a breath of fresh sea air – where are your favourite parts of the Irish coastline?

    We have an amazing coastline here in Ireland, so I find it impossible to choose one spot on this beautiful island. I absolutely crave the sea, and will always seek out a swimming spot wherever I am, all year round. I love our local urban coastline here in Dublin, but I’m really looking forward to revisiting magical spots along the coasts of Galway, Clare, Kerry, Cork and Waterford as soon as I can, with a particular soft spot for Kilkee and Valentia Island. These are all places, some real, some remembered, that resonate with me, each scene brings me back to a particular moment, memory or journey. The Dalkey Island piece really resonates with me right now, bringing me back to childhood summers, cycling up there with my mum or swimming there with my dad.

    What sparked your initial interest in art?
    I grew up in a very artistic family, but somehow only realised I had a passion and talent for art when I was in my twenties. After studying languages at UCD, I went to Florence to prepare a portfolio to apply for Architecture. One of my first evenings in the city, I went to a life drawing session at The Cecil School, one of the renowned classical art schools in Florence, and from that moment, I fell in love with the process of creating a visual response to my surroundings. I stayed in Florence for a year, where I studied the “sight size” method used by the Renaissance masters, and then I moved to London, where I studied portraiture at Heatherley’s Art College in Chelsea for two years. These classical and contemporary influences were an amazing starting point in my career as an artist.
