Subjects such as landscapes, seascapes, woodlands, gardens and flowers feature in my work and are often painted in oils, watercolour, pastel and other media. As an artist I like to experiment with material and techniques and paint things personal to me.
I have been painting, drawing and exhibiting for many years and over the years I have explored different media and techniques. Painting the countryside and locations I have visited and with a great love of nature I like to portray the environment and landscape around me.
In 2001 I became a selected full member of the Pastel Society of Ireland and I am also a member of the Barrow Valley Group of Painters, Athy Art Group and Art Bank Bunclody and exhibit with them regularly. I exhibit ever June in a solo exhibition during the Carlow Arts Fringe Festival and in a group exhibition in Dunlavin Arts Festival. I have also exhibited many times in the Kilkenny Arts Festival Fringe and I tutored art classes and tutored with community groups for the V.E.C. in Carlow, Kildare and Kilkenny.
I have lived and worked most of my life in Carlow but was born in Dungarvan Co.Waterford which gives me a great love of the sea and coastline.
