After receiving a degree in Fine Art Sculpture in 2004, I worked in a variety of jobs from construction work to metal fabrication. In 2006, I set up my own business called Red Hill Sculpture which specialises in bespoke metalwork in which I design and make contemporary gates, staircases and railings. Since then, my work has headed in a more creative direction. I have been involved with many different public sculpture commissions through out county Galway. I have also been employed by different schools to give creative workshops in design and creating sculpture. The Electric Picnic commissioned me in 2011 and 2012 to make large-scale installations for the festival, one of which received an award in 2011. I have been asked to work with the European Recycling Platform, a pan-European organisation, on a regular basis to work on installations, sculptures and campaigns to highlight the responsible disposal of electrical waste. I’m also a board member of the Irish Artist Blacksmith Association. The most important aspect of my practice is creating work for myself. I have received bursaries from the Galway Arts Office for some of these personal projects. I have exhibited in such galleries as The Kenny Gallery, Galway. The Town House, Monaghan, The Titanic Centre, Belfast, as well as exhibiting my large scale work at such festivals as The Electric Picnic, Puck Fair, Killorglin, The Galway Volvo Ocean Race, The Oranmore Celtic Shore Festival, The Cork Cycling Festival and the National Ploughing Championships
