Art / Poetry Projects…

In September 2020 one poem & three visual pieces appeared in ‘Here I Am’ an International Open Exhibition at Art in the Attic, curated by Sharon Magill.

In October 2018 I completed a project – Crossing Points – taking photos and writing poems in response to them, then displaying the photos and poems together in the window of a laundrette. This project was commissioned by the madeinroath arts festival.
