I was born in Ireland and have worked in ceramics for nearly 25 years, gaining experience with several artists before attending college in 1998; I graduated from the University of Ulster, Belfast in 2003 with a Masters in Applied Arts. Currently I teach at the Galway Mayo Institute of Technology on the Design program.
I edit and publish the Ceramics Ireland magazine biannually, which is used to promote Irish ceramics both nationally and internationally. I am also a committee member of Ceramics Ireland, which has a membership of over 200 makers based throughout the country.
In February 2019, I published a book celebrating Ceramics Ireland’s 40th Anniversary – Ceramics Ireland – Celebrating makers and Community.
I am also a member of the International Academy of Ceramics.
