La Macina di San Cresci



“Artists are interesting creatures. We can be obsessive, dedicated, spirited and single minded in our pursuit for that perfect realisation of our art. We tend to be outsiders and are often that square peg in the round hole, so when you find an oasis like San Cresci you hold on tight -- for it’s that sense of belonging which welcomes you.”

"The proposed outcome is to develop all source material gathered during the period.Siobhan Piercy  is an Irish artist whose work I admire and whom I interviewed for my Degree thesis. In 1993 she won a six month scholarship at the British School in Rome. This had a strong influence on her later work on her return to Ireland, the mood of her prints becoming quieter and more reflective. It is interesting the change and shift the experience had on her work, and in some ways I aspire to a similar experience."
