I am a water colour artist who also works with pencils
and polychromos pencils. I live in the west of Ireland
My art aims to please and to help the viewer see the
regular things that we miss through the busy fast pace
of modern life.
We all try so hard to achieve and rush around yearning
for the things that are just out of reach so we don't take
the time to stop and enjoy what is already around us in
our daily lives. I paint these objects so I can see the
beauty of the simple things within my home environment.
So I can STOP and see the simplicity, enjoyment and beauty
of the regular everyday objects that pass me by because
life is so fast.
My Chosen medium is water colour paint, water colour pencils
and polychromos pencils. Through constant glazing I can
achieve depth and with delicate transparencies I can achieve
stronger aspects of light, shade and atmosphere. There is
nothing deep or conceptual about my work. I strive to
represent what I see as accurately and realistically as my
drawing skills will allow. I cannot put into words the deep
feelings of satisfaction and joy I receive from painting what
I see in watercolour.
