Hello and welcome to my website. Here you can view a selection of work and gain some insight into studio activity. The primary materials in use are leather, paper and ceramic and I manipulate these materials in a variety of ways. Art works encompass drawing, sculpture and installation whilst design work involves creations in the finest quality leather, suede and sheepskin materials.
I engage with individual clients regularly, creating one-off special pieces that can take two months or more to complete. I love this process! I also love creating costume for film and stage, this is altogether different from my couture work.
In-between these endeavours I create little items that are available from the shop and am delighted that a wider audience can access these pieces. All the products are made in my Dublin studio. There is no production line, everything is lovingly made to order. From time to time I will highlight one-off concept pieces and display current works in progress.
Visitors are welcome to call into the studio during public opening hours: Wednesday – Friday 11am – 4.30pm. All other times are by appointment.
