Born and raised in Irvinestown, she is one of seven children by Francis and Teresa McNulty, and moved to Leicester United Kingdom in 1999 to follow a passion in Performance art after spending much of her childhood painting.

She was also a member of the Improv Comedy group Bachman Turner Improvise until 2006.

She returned to Fermanagh in 2006 after an upheaval in life and focussed mainly on painting again, and abandoned performance to study colour, light and water in more depth.
