Inspired by the scientific theory The Butterfly Effect, this image reflects on how small changes (such as the flapping of wings by a butterfly) can lead to large scale changes over time and can change the course of the universe. Global warming affects us all. Ice sheets are melting, weather patterns are changing causing droughts, flooding, hurricanes etc, greenhouse gas emissions continue to grow, and sea levels are rising. If everyone makes a small effort to address global warming at the local level the cumulative effect can cause a tidal wave of change, leading to positive transformation.
I am a graphic designer originally from Galway but living in Lucan for the over 20 years. I have worked many years as both a freelance designer and an inhouse designer, but in recent times have been focusing on raising my family. I specialise in print design posters, computer illustrations, as well as photo retouching and Powerpoint illustrations. I am also very passionate about gardening and nature, and a lot of my work features elements of nature.
