“I am a Meath based designer & milliner, specialising in original abstract paintings & unique headpieces. I began experimenting with fluid painting during the pandemic & found a love for the free-flowing movement and creativity of abstract art.
Before diving into the world of abstract art, I was working in Costume Design on the West End in London.
However, previous to this I was a Primary School Teacher for many years before retraining and following my dreams of working in design & the arts.
Art, theatre and the creative world have always been my passions and I am delighted to be working in an industry that brings me such joy.
In 2020, one of my headpieces was chosen to be showcased at London Hat Week and another headpiece was worn by the presenter Charlotte Hawkins while presenting at The Royal Ascot Races for ITV. In 2022, pieces from my collection ‘Glór na Mara’ were showcased in VOGUE UK, in the Vogue Gallery.”
