My primary academic background is in Art History, and my previous research has included Victorian art, Georgian portraiture, and the stone high crosses of England and Ireland. In my MA project, I focused on analysing these crosses to explore the links between art and education and politics in medieval society.
I am currently researching the materiality and impact of the Irish high crosses, with a focus on the house-shaped capstones, and their relationship to the religious and funerary practices of the early medieval period.
