I’m an artist based in Dublin, I studied animation in Ballyfermot many years ago, after that I went on to teach my own life drawing classes and volunteered teaching art in different homeless services in the city.

I now work in the homeless sector full time and I like to split my time between my career there and painting.

I spent a lot of time during lockdown exploring abstract styles of working, learning to communicate through sharp block shapes against soft gradient backgrounds has been a really fulfilling experience.

I also regularly paint portraits of my friends dogs (I have a few more I can share?

I work mainly with with acrylic on canvas but enjoy exploring other mediums.  I am hoping to eventually build up a body of work to exhibit.
