Artwork Title: ‘California Hills’
Artwork Location: Kylemore Road, Ballyfermot Road
Artwork Description: The California Hills Park in Ballyfermot is so called because when the area was first developed the local kids played ‘Cowboys and Indians’ there. My design acknowledges the origin of the name and acts as a ‘signpost’ towards the park. The design is also a nod to the Western Comics of the 1950’s.
Biography: Before joining Dublin City Council I studied Art & Design for 3 years. Since then I have continued my interest in art and have completed numerous private commissions. My current area of interest is in digital design and creating images with clean lines and bold colours.
