We have always made marks, objects and sculptures, been fascinated by the world in which we inhabit; its built and natural environment, Its histories, lore, people and their stories.  We tell these stories, fashion them out of clay, bend them into metal and melt them into bronze and aluminium.

We both graduated from the Crawford Collage of Art and Design, Cork in 1987. As a husband and wife team, we have been collaborating on public art for the last 20 years. Our work has developed from small low-relief wall panels using cast aluminium as a medium through to large scale public commissions combining a variety of different materials that include cast bronze, wood, enamelled copper, glass, stone and stainless steel.

Our studio work also includes these materials as well as linocut and photopolymer printmaking.

We work from our studio in North Cork as well as in our home under the shade of the Shandon Bells.
