I’m an artist/photographer based in Ennis, Co. Clare, Ireland. I like photographing painterly/fine art scenes. My themes are wide and varied including the innocence of childhood, precious family moments, dramatic seascapes and landscapes,vibrant flowers and moody figure studies. I tend to paint impressionistic and moody paintings. The media I work in include watercolours, oils, pastels, acrylics and paintings on silk.
The thing I love about painting/photography is that it captures a moment in time. I love the edges, curves and textures of the Burren in particular and the West of Ireland in general. Light patterns, colours and the beauty of the land, sea and sky are my inspiration. I love both the subtle and dramatic changes in the weather and seasons and how they affect the quality of light.
