I'm from Ireland and moved to Los Angeles in 2015. Since graduating in 2000 I’ve used drawing, video and multi-media installation in my work and it's always somewhat informed by research into natural phenomena. Recently I've been working with the concept and color black. My work explores themes of movement and energy in nature such as tectonic plates, landslides and wild fires. Some of the Black Unfolding drawings incorporate charcoal made after collecting the burnt wood from sites of wild fires in the Los Angeles area. You'll find me at my studio covered in charcoal, stargazing in the desert, beach-combing, buried in a book about my latest obsession or laughing to myself.
