my story

 

BIG DREAMS IN A LITTLE COUNTRY

I was born in the North West of Ireland, in a land where majestic mountains rise to meet dramatic and beautiful skies. Where the Atlantic ocean shapes the coastline and deep lakes hold secrets.

It was here as a child I used every means at hand to capture the wonders surrounding me, chalk on stone, paint, pencil on any available surface - twigs, leaves and pebbles moulded into fantastical creations.

My dreams were big and soon carried me off on new adventures.  

CHASING THE SUN

Having studied in London and Belfast with time spent in Dublin I now live and work in Sydney, Australia.  

Here I've found new inspiration in the light and nature of this vast continent - the strength, variation and scale of the Australian landscape fascinates. The contasting ways of living in our cities and bush are as dramatic as they are challenging.

Whilst I sometimes use observational drawing to capture a thought or collect a scene I explore from there and express my final artwork in an abstract manner. Utilising a variety of mediums - whatever fits the piece and conveys the idea.

Thank you for visting this website and I hope you enjoy the works.
