I’m an full-time artist, with an illustration background. I like to create paintings and drawings that are luminous and atmospheric. My work is influenced by my surroundings and love of the natural world intertwined with myths and legends that are rooted in my Irish Celtic background.
My art is informed by my studies for a BA (Hons) Visual Communication specialising in Illustration at the University of Westminster and a Foundation in Art and Design at Central St Martins. After leaving university I worked in the voluntary and public sector but when I moved to Cornwall I started to paint full-time.
I was born and raised in London to Irish parents but spent Summer holidays visiting my grandparents on the Dingle Peninsula on the southwest Atlantic coast of Ireland, a region of Ireland that is officially recognised as bastion of Irish language and culture surrounded by beautiful natural scenery.
I now live on the stunningly beautiful Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall, a place that is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and my studio is surrounded by stunning views that are a source of constant inspiration for my paintings and drawings.
I’m a daily painter and enjoy creating small still life and landscape studies.
In September 2018 I became a full member of NAPA, National Acrylic Painters' Association.
