Claire Mc Dermott

Mc Dermott is a multidisciplinary artisan and poet, using oral Irish knowledge of the land and biophysics to research spent plants; to understand their function and mechanism and how they interact with our atmosphere.  Her passion was ignited by her field observation of phenomena that she witness in nature now detailed in tow of her recently published poems.  Her artwork embraces sustainability and explore social and environmental concerns and she uses macro photography to capture the essence of nature, while her notebook drawings drawings are her method of formulate the data of her thinking.
