I am a full time artist with eleven years experience of exhibiting and selling my work in Ireland, the UK and the U.S. A native of West Cork, I graduated from the National College of Art and Design in Dublin with First Class Honours an now live and paint from my studio in Ballylibert, Castlefreke, West Cork, Ireland.
I live and work in a small former farmhouse within walking distance of the wild Atlantic. The studio is surrounded by three acres of land; this land is now tamed into garden rooms which feature in many of my paintings. My work is inspired by the garden, by the wild Atlantic coastline and surrounding rural landscape. My son Daniel is a keen fisherman and supplies the kitchen with fresh mackerel and crab caught on the craggy coastline. I feel very priviliged to live in such a beautiful part of the world.
The Garden Series of paintings are of my garden which surrounds the studio.
