Enniskillen: 2020





 

 

Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, with a background of fine art, art therapy and performance art. I am currently studying on the MFA course, in the  University Ulster, Belfast. My performance, drawings and video respond from an  embodied art practice, engaging with connections between inner transformation and societal change. My aims are to expand awareness of the crucial and complex role of the body in making and experiencing art. 

 

McGinn casts a net over an ocean of experience and extracts her truths through variegated metaphor..
