She has created pieces for several productions by Dublin Lyric Players as well as creating masks for the National Library’s Yeats Exhibition -currently in the National Library.

This Autumn she will be returning for the 2015 Wexford Festival Opera and will also begin work on the Wexford Art Office’s Living Arts Project. From 2005 to 2014, Caoimhe worked with Buí Bolg Productions as a model & prop maker, designer, puppeteer, performer and as their primary Outreach Artist and Youth Arts Facilitator. She has directed, and performed and devised street theatre shows with Buí Bolg and Buí Bolg Youth Arts and has facilitated a mix of workshops for them and others.
