'At Home Away From Home'
Dunawley Avenue, Clondalkin, Dublin.
South Dublin County Council
Clondalkin is home to many immigrants, myself included. While the transition from one lifestyle to another and swapping the mother tongue for a foreign language is never easy, settling in is just a matter of time. Clondalkin is a home away from home for many people like me. My design depicts traditional Polish and broadly Eastern European florals and motifs that bring a touch of one home to another.
I am a science student in UCD and Clondalkin has been my home since the end of 2005 when I moved here from Poland. Art is just one hobby I can't give up regardless of time constraints and work commitments.
