Age 18 • Wexford


I based my painting on a poem, 'Escapism', written by my mam during the current lockdown. She is an avid book lover. I try to portray her love of books and the escapism it can offer particularly in a difficult time such as now. Although we can’t physically leave the house we can experience many adventures. I chose pencil as my medium as I feel it allows me to display attention to finer detailing.
