Pencil : 50 Shades of Grey
I love drawing as an art form in its own right. For this exhibition I concentrated exclusively on my pencil drawings. It was very challenging using only pencil but it hugely exciting to create these pieces of art. I seek continually to renew my art and this is why this exhibition has came about. Every piece resonates with something from my childhood, U2 ticket from Croke Park 1987, Old Brown Thomas from Christmas shopping with my mum. A love letter from Lady Lavery to Micheal Collins, We had a photograph of my Nanas brother Harry at Micheal Collins funeral and I was fascinated by him and the stories my Nana would tell about Harry as a ‘runner' for Collins.etc.. playing cards, my father thought all my children to play poker.
