My introduction to art began at Corks Crawford Gallery where in 1958/1959 I attended art classes having won a children’s art competition. In 1990 I began painting in oil, and since then I have received drawing and painting tuition from several artists. Took early retirement from my career as an Telecoms engineer in 2007 and set up a studio in my back garden where I now paint on a daily basis. I like to experiment with various subject matters on small canvas panels, and in several mediums.
I am inspired by artists such as Frank McKelvey and Trevor Chamberlain.
My preferred media are oil and acrylic on canvas. I like to paint loosely using impressionistic layering/glazing techniques whilst still maintaining some focus on detail.
