Completely self taught , i began my art journey in the galleries of Dublin , with pencils and paper . Eventually , i was fortunate enough to see my work hang alongside the artists i admired . My work has shown at the RHA , RUA and countless galleries throughout the island of Ireland .
At the moment , i am focusing on charcoal and conte , with some pastel work , although i also work in oil . I have always enjoyed the beauty and drama of tonal work , capturing textures and light in their purest form .
Sea and sky , rocks that have twisted and turned by the forces of nature over millions of years , i grew up as close to the coast as you can imagine . The contrasting flat landscape beyond Rush and stretching out through North Dublin ..... and Paris , my second home . Yet , you just never know where inspiration might come from .
