I love all the flamboyant garden gnomes, gargoyles and ceramic birds. When I first moved Dublin I was constantly getting lost. Then I began to notice the quirks in houses and gardens. I would use these as markers to find my way home through the estates to and from the shops. For my city canvas piece I want to revisit and add to the vibrance that can help people get through the maze of pebbledash houses.I'm really inspired by the work of grayson perry, I want to chanel his colourful quirky work in this piece.
