Based in Castleconnell, County Limerick, I work in watercolours, monochrome and pastel, landscapes, figurative, still life and portraiture I like the variety of different mediums and the challenge of experimentation.
In recent years I have been working with a new and very exciting oil technique which I call CreArtigan. This is a method where I build up many transparent layers of colour introducing action, movement, light and shade through the removal of paint rather than the application. This approach has a spontaneity which I find very exciting and which I can only equate to the delights of the multitude of “happy accidents” that occur in watercolours.
Over the past 40 years I have exhibited widely, both nationally and internationally. I am now venturing into the On-Line world and need a dynamic and vibrant Web Gallery to exhibit and sell my paintings to an International Audience.
