Of Irish nationality and based in Spain, I am self taught and have been painting professionally since 2006. For many years I drew inspiration from architecture and the built environment, in particular the Dublin suburbs where I grew up. In recent years, my appreciation of nature has found its way into my painting – sometimes the coastline where I currently live, and also my memories of time spent in Africa. My objective in this recent work is to convey the sense of presence and restoration we feel when in nature.
I work in oil on paper or canvas, both from life and with the use of reference photos.
