Artwork Title: 'Luas Life'
Artwork Location: Saint John's Road West, Dublin 8
Artwork Description: I wished to colourfully portray the snippets of ordinary life on the Luas. I playfully illustrated the different characters and simple moments of everyday life that are exhibited on the carriages of the Luas each day. I feel the box dimension when painted will evoke that crammed feeling of energy on a busy day in a Luas carriage.
I would like to paint this piece in a buzzing part of the city, maybe even near or close to one of the new Luas stops (although not necessary) to echo the collection of people tackling their day.
Biography: I have studied in Limerick School of Art & Design majoring in Fine Art with a focus on painting and Sculpture & Combined Media. Currently based between Laois and Dublin I am currently running my own curriculum of art classes for children and adults. Within my practice, I like to work in many different mediums, such as drawing video and painting. Each year I create various outdoor pieces for Electric Picnic, Body & Soul, Green crafts and B.Y.E.
