Patricia is a Fine Art Photographer from County Cavan, Ireland. Since moving to Edinburgh in 2014 she has focused on the influence of our atmosphere in the production of landscape and astrophotography. This project has seen her spend time on the Isle of Lewis photographing its landscapes. She has also developed a collaborative relationship with astronomers and astrophysicists at the Royal Observatory, Edinburgh.

Through this collaboration her work combines both landscape and astrophotography and dived into a domestication of the astronomical sublime. Her practice has become a place where nebulas are 'connected' to light switches, galaxies become unreadable maps, interstellar dust clouds become 'removable', planets are closer to Earth than they are in reality, and a park bench becomes a viewing platform for the approach of our nearest galaxy - Andromeda.

Patricia completed her post-graduate studies at Edinburgh College of Art and won the Art in Healthcare Award in 2016.
