I was awarded a commission by the Office of Public Works under the Percent for Art Scheme in collaboration with the National Parks & Wildlife Service of the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage and Mayo County Council Arts Service, marking the tenth anniversary of the Visitor Centre at Wild Nephin Ballycroy National Park.
As part of the award, I created a solo exhibition of my enamel work and a short film about the enamelling processes I use in my artwork. The exhibition was installed and opened on the 1st October at the Visitor Centre at Ballycroy, but due to Covid restrictions, the Visitor Centre had to close on the 7th October for the foreseeable future.
The short film, What is Enamelling? can be seen below:
