About this image

Originally from Ireland, I believe that storytelling is part of my heritage. My narrative series Words in Sight is inspired by poetry I have written over the past decade. I create imaginative, theatrical environments which evoke emotion through colour, symbolism, texture and atmosphere. I play upon nostalgia and tap into a universal understanding of emotion and experience. The composition of the image suggests a larger narrative within a single moment and explores my sense of self within society.
