Raised working-class in a small nation dominated by Catholicism and men, she now lives as a teacher, a mother, and an artist discovering the joy of playing with taboos and visions of female identity that would until all to recently have seen her locked away.
Her projects span visual art, film, storytelling and theatre.
Her influences are a long list—basically any woman who ever did a damned thing worth doing.
“My work is a place where my joy in creativity as a woman is wholly my own and ungovernable. Through the pain and sometimes even the unspeakable, there are no limits. As women, we contain it all.”
Deirdre was a founder and key organiser of the festival, and also performed and exhibited her work. The festival attracted over 3,000 visitors.
Her use of media follows the iconography of identity, mishmashes of cheap paint, gold leaf, sound, and theatre.
