I am an Irish artisan and designer born in 1964 and raised in Dublin, Ireland. I have worked within the engineering design industries for over thirty years. I first began my career as an apprentice in the craft of metal fabrication and welding, later becoming a master metal fabricator, then a professional Draughtsman designing mechanical and structural engineering products. I have also lectured in 3D modelling, engineering and metalwork design in the Dublin Institute of Technology.
After studying Art and Industrial Design this led me into the realm of conceptual art and I began as a full time Visual Artist in May 2019 creating conceptual metallic artworks, jewellery, digital paintings and handmade interior design pieces. My range of distinctive and individual metalwork creations are derived from my design, practical and visual experience in engineering and geometric configurations. I have used this influence to inject my ideas into new sculptural forms and also to attempt the use of biomimicry and the influence of nature as a launching pad for innovative art forms. My media are any recycled and salvaged materials such as copper, carbon steel and timber. My art style could be described as either abstract and/or Celtic-influenced creations.
