I have a background in Architecture, Signwriting and Trail Development. I finally found the nerve to follow my heart and returned to painting and drawing a few years ago.
I work mainly in Pastels, but I also paint with acrylic and oil.
Based in West Cork, I have plenty of inspiration around me. I am drawn (no pun intended) to the wilder aspect of the landscape around me – our rugged hills, the wild plants, flowers and grasses.
Of course like all artists I love the sea, it’s such a complicated subject to paint and draw, a huge challenge.
Colour, atmosphere and movement are a goal in my paintings.
I hope that 2023 brings more Pleinair work, more learning, and finally a website.
