What made you stay in Dublin?
For me, it was the excitement of working in a multidisciplinary arts centre. I was really quite amazed at the visual arts scene here in Dublin when I arrived. The quality of work happening in studios and the kind of residencies available for visual artists surprised me. Dublin was, and still is, a rich terrain for visual art.
When you first moved over did you find it easy to get involved in Dublin’s social and cultural life?
Very much so. It's so well-networked, and everybody is very supportive. Dublin is a relatively small city, you can just walk around and contribute and collaborate with other artists and galleries. I was helped by some friendly people who took me in, people with whom I've developed strong, close friendships.
