About

I am a completely self taught artist and I work from my studio in South Tipperary. I have been painting for years but never had the opportunity to study art or make a career of it. my subject matter range from atmospheric landscapes in oils to abstract work in acrylic.

My paintings are both contemporary and abstract. I like to add that little touch of mystery and draw your attention to the horizon and what lies beyond. I also like to use images to portray distance. Everyone will see something different in each painting. It is up to each viewer to decide what they see in the painting. I like to make the viewer think upon my work to discover what lies hidden for them.

My paintings are inspired by many aspects of life, and reflect all my interests. I get inspiration from my travelling trips where I draw my influences from.

I love to use the palette knife as paints can be mixed naturally on the canvas this way and a fantastic texture can be achieved. Colour is important in expressing the moods and mists of our ever changing landscape. I continue to experiment with my paintings and am not afraid to try new techniques.

My paintings hang in private collections in America, Britain, Malta, Italy and throughout Ireland.

My paintings range in price from 700euro down to 250 euro.  I accept commissions.
