About this submission
I draw inspiration for a lot of my work from the experiences and stories of the people around me. I am drawn to real stories based on real people.
Sisters was inspired by true stories of a family friend who grew up in abusive catholic institutions. Her stories stuck with me and I knew I wanted to bring it to light in some form. The abuse of the church and state shouldn’t be forgotten. I wanted to explore this vital part of Irish history in the beautiful and heartfelt moments of these sisters that universal audiences can connected with.
