wehewehe wau iaʻu iho ʻO ka mea mua ma ke ʻano he mea pena, kahi e hōʻike ai ka mea pena i nā hana ʻē aʻe i kaʻu hana ma ke ʻano he mea pena kiʻi. Ma 2003 ua hoʻoholo wau e haʻalele i kaʻu ʻoihana ma ka hoʻokele moʻomeheu moʻomeheu e lilo i mea pena kiʻi piha. ʻAʻole paha hiki iaʻu ke koho i kahi manawa paʻakikī me ke kuleana o nā keiki liʻiliʻi ʻehā a me ka neʻe ʻana mai Dublin a i Cavan, a laila i wehewehe ʻia iaʻu he 'moʻomeheu backwater'. 

Akā, hoʻomanaʻo wau i kahi kamaʻilio ma waena o Alex Katz a me Theo Dorgan ma IMMA ma 2007, ma ke ʻano he ʻāpana o ka hōʻike 'Alex Katz: New York'. Ua ʻōlelo ka mea pena kiʻi ua aʻo ʻo ia i ka pena ma ke kula ma waho o New York; Ua hele ʻo ia ma laila ma ke kaʻaahi no kekahi mau makahiki e nānā i kahi hoʻokahi a pena mau. Hoʻoikaika kēia iaʻu i ka manaʻoʻiʻo e hiki i kahi māla ke aʻo iā ʻoe pehea e pena ai a hiki ke hana ʻia nā hana nui ma nā wahi liʻiliʻi. 

Hana wau i nā hale lumi lumi i kekahi manawa mai nā kuleana o ka home a noʻonoʻo hou i kaʻu hana mai kahi mamao aku, i mea e hoʻi ai me ka ikaika e kahi manaʻo a i ʻole kaʻina hana. Ua loaʻa iaʻu nā noho noho honua a me Irish i nā makahiki me: Carpe Diem ma Kochi, India; ka Papahana Leonardo ʻEulopa ma Tartu Print and Paper Museum, Estonia; a me Cill Rialaig a me The Tyrone Guthrie Center ma Ireland. Ma kahi noho i hana ʻia i ka US, ua hoʻolauna ʻia au i ka paʻi mono wai me ka haku paʻi, ʻo Tony Kirk, nāna i hana pū me nā mea pena aʻu i mahalo ai, ʻo Wolf Kahn lāua ʻo Kiki Smith.

ʻO ka hana i hoʻomaka ma ka hale noho ma Kerala, India, ua alakaʻi i ʻelua mau hōʻikeʻike solo: 'ʻO kēia kahi aʻu e noho ai, kēia wahi kikoʻī' ma Farmleigh, Dublin, ma 2017; a me 'Ma waho o ke kūlanakauhale' ma Axis Ballymun i 2018, ʻo ia ka hoʻi i koʻu wahi kamaliʻi. Ma kēia mau hōʻikeʻike ʻelua, ua ʻimi au i koʻu hoʻoilina ʻana a me ka lāhui hui ʻia ʻo Irish-Indian ma o ke ʻano o nā kiʻi pena i ka ʻaila a me nā kala wai. Ke hana nei au i nā kala wai no kekahi mau makahiki me nā hōʻikeʻike pūʻulu ma The Bankside Gallery London, ka Palace of Arts Krakow, OED Kochi, a me nā Hale Hōʻikeʻike Kūʻai, me ka papa inoa pōkole hou no ka hoʻokūkū ʻo Sunday Times Watercolor Competition. I ka makahiki 2019 ua loaʻa i kaʻu hana ka makana makahiki a ka Pelekikena Watercolor Society of Ireland. 

Paipai ka Watercolor i ke kūʻokoʻa ʻoi aʻe iaʻu e hele me ka pena, e hana i kahi unahi ma waho oʻu iho a e hana i kahi ākea ʻekolu a neʻe. Ma lalo o ka laka, hoʻomaka wau e ʻauʻau i loko o Lough Ramor. ʻO ka manaʻo i loaʻa iaʻu i ka hoʻokiʻekiʻe ʻana a me ka maopopo ʻole o ka wai loko, ʻo ia ka manaʻo like i koʻu wā e pena ai. Aia ka māmā a me ka nele o ka mana i loko o ka wai kala a ua hōʻike kēia mau ʻano i ka hoʻonohonoho hou ʻana a me nā kaʻina hana kiʻi i lalo o ka wai aʻu e ʻimi nei. ʻO kēia mau ʻano hana hou e ʻike hou ʻia ana i ka manawa nalowale a mākou e noho nei i kēia manawa. Kapa au i kēia hana ʻo 'The Epilimnion' – aia ma loko a ma kahi kokoke i ka loko, i ka ʻāina a me aʻu iho; he mea komo a he mea nana i ka manawa like. He kiʻi ponoʻī o nā ʻano. 

Hana wau i nā kiʻi paʻi ponoʻī i nā manawa koʻikoʻi o koʻu ola a mālama ʻia kekahi ma nā hōʻiliʻili lehulehu e like me ka OPW Dublin, UNESCO Paris, a me ka Ruth Borchard Self Portrait Prize, London. ʻO kēia ka nānā ʻana o ka studio iaʻu iho ma ke ʻano he mea pena, makuahine a me ka wahine i kēia manawa ʻo Ireland. Manaʻo wau ma o ka ʻaila mau loa, e hele mua kēia i ka manawa. I kēia mau lā, ua ʻike au i ʻelua mau hōʻikeʻike a nā wahine kiʻi kiʻi i loaʻa nā kiʻi paʻi kiʻi ikaika - ʻo ka hōʻike solo a Maria Lassnig, 'Ways of Being' ma Albertina ma Vienna, Austria, a me Helene Schjerfbeck i ka Royal Academy ma Lākana. Ma 2022 e loaʻa iaʻu nā hōʻike solo ma Hambly & Hambly ma Dunbar House, Enniskillen, a ma Jehangir Art Gallery, Mumbai, India. 

He mea pena kiʻi ʻo Michelle Boyle curator i kekahi manawa me kahi kumu kula ma Cultural Anthropology and Landscape Archaeology.
