I've always been in awe of the storyteller, those gifted people who so fluidly guide you into their fantasy worlds, who submerge you so deeply, you cry, laugh and even seethe with anger and frustration. To me, this is true magic, possessing the rare skill of creating something from nothing, evoking such passion and emotion. Growing up I found words didnt come so easily to me. Art became my creative channel. I was transformed into the Cailleach Feasa, the storyteller, were I recorded and recollected all the tales from times gone by, breathing life back into places and quirky characters I met along the way. I grew up in a small village in Donegal and like most small communities in Ireland it was filled with the most amazing characters. As a child my head was filled with fantastical stories told and dramatised by neighbours and family, the gatekeepers of local history. These tales, were of course, exaggerated and embellished with such fun and gusto, like only true Irish seanchai could, that I couldnt help growing up with a great love of the people around me and all their fascinating antics. In my work I narrate the stories with colour and humour as over the years theyve formed and shaped in my memory. My paintings become the text, and you, the reader.
