I love traveling. I love the sensation of transience. I love that space between arriving and leaving. I have found that making drawings of what I see allows me a relief, a decompression so to speak, from the anxiety of joy that these moments can evoke. When I return to Galway these drawings form a very important part in validating and motivating my studio work, which has a different set of desires and considerations.
Between June 2012 and September 2013 I undertook a world trip, during which I completed 25 sketchpads, approximatly 1,500 drawing… a lot of joyful moments.
