“I have always had a passion for digital media. I was educated in the Limerick School of Art and Design where I graduated with a degree in Visual Communications. It was here that I discovered my affiliation for digital art. I have always been inspired by geometrical abstraction, which is a style that influences all of my content creation including digital painting, packaging design and product design. I find myself drawn to structured imagery, visuals that are crafted with careful consideration to the structural integrity of the piece. I like my designs to contain shapes and forms that are both pointed and angled, everything in its right place. I want the viewer to get an impression of sustainability, unwavering foundations and dependability. Visual abstraction grants the viewer an opportunity to project his or her own interpretation; there is no right or wrong, only feeling. As an artist, I aim to project feelings of euphoria, emotional plasticity and contentment”
