The Lough Hyne Collection
In 2005 I moved to West Cork, very close to Lough Hyne, Europe’s first marine reserve. It’s both fascinating & breathtaking in equal measure. It is home to a myriad of rare and wonderful creatures. From Pipefish to Urchins, sponges to the symbiotic Adamsia, all cohabiting in perfect harmony.
Over the years I have walked, swam, cycled, canoed & photographed Lough Hyne and the local area, never failing to be moved by this beautiful gem in West Cork.
At quieter times I have been inspired to create silver representations of the fauna and flora to be found in and around the lake and its environs, and so ‘The Lough Hyne Collection’ was born.
