My Inspiration

Rivers entering the sea inspired this piece. Many of these rivers are contaminated with pollution. Fortunately in Ireland most of our rivers are clean and sources of inspiration. I wanted to portray these conflicting emotions as I thought about the beauty and pollution of our waters.


I dripped acrylic inks onto the canvas. I later dripped paints and glitter. I thought about stagnant pools of polluted water. I portrayed these using resin and paint. Afterwards I wanted to show how nature adapts and foliage grows even in polluted areas. I wanted to illustrate the texture and colour of flowers growing along a river bank. I baked plastic acrylic paint and made 3D paint leaves. These are representative of both physical and metaphysical growth and transformation.
