Geraldine Leahy returned to education to study painting with The Open College of the Arts (OCA), the distance-learning partner of The University for the Creative Arts (UCA). In 2022 she completed a BA (Hons) Painting degree. Her lifelong interest in landscape and the natural world informed her studies and her current body of work is concerned with coastal erosion in her locality. Her practice involves the observation of traces and imprints in the littoral landscape, the marks of natural processes and human interventions. Observing the entanglements of natural and manmade materials on the beach, she uses shoreline debris in layered processes that suggest changes in the environment and encourage reflection on the effects mankind has had on the landscape.
