Originally from Scotland, for the last 9 years I have lived in the picturesque village of Quin. I am inspired by the beautiful surroundings in Clare, in particular moments of everyday life in the towns and villages which might otherwise be overlooked. I studied at Edinburgh College of Art and after graduating, I continued to paint sporadically as work and life took over with young kids. As they get older I have had more time to pursue my passion.
Although I have dabbled with many media including oils, pastels and acrylic and have painted many subject matters including portraits, I most enjoy painting buildings and in particular townscapes, most recently with pen and watercolour. I love to put people into my paintings. I think they bring a sense of everyday normality to the scene, while at the same time, bringing them to life. My main aim is to make someone smile when they view my work.
I have prints displayed for purchase in several cafes in Ennis and Quin. Examples of my work can also be viewed on;
