Ursula Burke is an Irish artist who works within the discipline of sculpture. She uses a variety of media including porcelain sculpture, embroidery, drawing and photography. Much of her fine art practice deals with issues of representation and identity within contemporary Ireland, north and south of the border. She works with the personal and political in Irish society using multiple points of departure, from which to generalise her approach outwards to international concerns.
