I did a jewellery course and one of the things I made was the box above. I wanted to make a box with some detail on it. Before that I had done projects based on aborignal art and also maori culture so I think the idea for mask came from that. The faces on the four sides are based on the four elements- earth, wind, water and fire. The mask on top is a mixture of the four. The box is made of copper which was then silverplated.

This is a sketch of a zebra at the Natural History Museum.

These three pictures are from the Viking Festival in Wood Quay. I want to still add some colour. The drawings I've done over the last few years have mostly been either doodles or ideas and sketches related to a jewellery course that I did but I have started going out with the Dublin sketchers group so I want to start drawing more. Up to now I've mostly done pencil sketches but I want to start using other media such as pastel, paint etc.
