About me

 

I am an Irish designer and maker based in London, UK. My work questions traditional ideas of value and preciousness, unpicking and critiquing social norms, often in a humorous way. I also enjoy experimenting with unusual materials and finding new ways of fabricating beautiful objects. I graduated from Goldsmiths University in 2015 with a masters degree in Design Critical Practice. Previously, I completed a degree in Craft Design: Jewellery and Metals from the National College of Art and Design, Dublin, receiving first class honours for my thesis and jewellery collection.
