eally excited to have one of my collage pieces on the cover of the Stinging Fly magazine. It is more of an anthology than a magazine to be fair, stretching to over 220 pages and featuring work by fifty poets and writers. The Stinging Fly celebrates its 20th birthday this year, and is an Irish publication showcasing new writers and new writing.

This issue contains work that explores different issues surrounding housing and homelessness. It makes for very compelling reading. You can buy the magazine, or indeed subscribe for a year or two at their website here: www.stingingfly.org

Other Worlds at SO Fine Art Gallery, Dublin opens on June 29th 2017.

It features my work alongside artists Yoko Akino, Clare Henderson and Aoife Scott.

I have really enjoyed making work for the show, which is a combination of etchings and collaged etching/monoprints. The theme inside worlds was one we agreed on when we started working on the show several months ago. Much of my work is about travel, or ideas of travel and escape, so the theme for me suggested projected or imagined worlds; places we have been, or would like to have been or may never visit. The collage pieces became a world within themselves: free from the constraints of making an etching, the source material provided by the etching process provided me with motifs and imagery with which to create a realm which pays homage to all the proofs that are cast aside when making an etching.
