As a child I always loved anything to do with painting and crafting. I was encouraged to paint at school in St Philomena’s and Laurel Hill FCJ. My first was a picture of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden (with an aeroplane in the sky!) . I progressed to designing and painting on parchment a cover for a Nursery Rhymes book. Then life and work took over. I continued to pursue art by taking night courses in various art forms in the LSAD and Gallery 75. I participated in many workshops including one with botanical artist Wendy Walsh in the Burren College of Art.
On taking early retirement, I took up the paint brushes with vigour. That year I had a small solo exhibition in the foyer of the Hunt Museum. I’ve lived in County Clare for some thirty years. I am inspired to paint the wonderful landscape, Atlantic coastline, the Burren, etc. One of my Burren paintings appeared on RTE Weather programme before the transmission of Painting the Nation. I mainly work in oils but also love to paint flowers in watercolour. My work adorns many walls in Ireland, England and Europe.
