I represented Ireland at the 2023 Biennial of Illustrations in Bratislava as the Chairperson for the International Jury.
Home Is Where the Heart Is
“Home is Where the Heart Is” is an experimental series of pop-up illustrated birdhouses. The idea of 'home' is universal, but these works are rooted in the personal. With the perspective of being an outsider (an immigrant) the artist has established a home in Ireland, but still empathises with refugees, immigrants, and transients. The birdhouses relate to ideas of migration, duality of belonging, and the ephemeral nature of home. Exhibited 2022 - 2023 in Siamsa Tire- The National Folk Theatre, Kerry; Garter Lane Arts Centre, Waterford; The Lord Mayor's Pavilion (Sample Studios), Cork.
In Memory of the Future
I was the curator and a participant in an exhibition in celebration of renowned illustrator, Tomi Ungerer. As our first honorary member, Ungerer accepted his place in Illustrators Ireland with grace and enthusiasm. Over 50 artists will participate by sharing their interpretations of Ungerer’s work and responses to his influence.
