Biography

An artist, this is her first time running for election. She is a graduate of NCAD and has held a number of exhibitions and been involved in numerous artistic projects in Ireland and abroad. She is running on a broadly left platform of liberating "art from class", which will involve abolishing educational barriers to the arts and introducing progressive taxation on art workers.

Why should someone vote for you (in 140 characters or fewer)?

A vote for me is a vote for the principle that art can help build political systems by describing what they could be.

Q.

To enable total equality of art participation towards the broader goal of radically redefining how society defines and values culture.

Q.

What one thing would you like to do in your first 100 days of the new Dáil if you are elected?

Donate my salary, minus a living wage, to art worker movements.
