Biography

My introduction to art began at Corks Crawford Gallery where I attended art school having won a local children’s art competition.
I am a self taught painter as I've had no formal training, but I have received drawing and painting tuition from several artists and began painting in oils in 1990.
I am inspired by morning and evening light and my work is about light, colour, and the interplay between colours. 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.

It is interesting how each one sees and feels an artwork. For my feelings the works which touch me most are: - Avonmore Viaduct Rathdrum - Wicklow River Avonmore - Skerries Harbour County Dublin - Still Life Markree Castle They fit into my preferred way to admire a picture, that is, as much real as possible... almost a photography. Congratulations!
