My passion for Watercolours began with a painting holiday in 1989. Afterwards, with some art tuition, I began to experiment and explore watercolour techniques and textures. Using a pallette of warm earthy tones such as burnt sienna, raw umber and moss green to name a few, I started to create my own unique painting style.
As an Artist, I am drawn to the rugged landscape of the western seaboard including many of the islands off Ireland’s coast. I try throughout the seasons to visit some place new for inspiration, capturing atmospheric qualities and recreating moments of time.
I have been involved in numerous group art exhibitions with Inis Artists and I also exhibit at Ardmore Art Gallery in Co. Waterford and Lucy Erridge Gallery, Adare, Co. Limerick where I had my first solo exhibition in 2008.
My work is included in many private collections in Ireland, Australia and America.
