My homeland is Ireland, with roots in Co. Carlow. My art work is largely inspired by my relationship with nature and my love of travel. I like to work in acrylic and oil paints. I love colour and I like to mix reality with the magic of imagination.
While largely self-taught as a visual artist, I have benefited from life-drawing studies at both RHA & NCAD art colleges in Dublin, Ireland. The greatest contribution to my creative develpment is due to my studies at the Bel Canto School of Singing (Dublin).
I improvise and adapt according to the space that I have to play with and a fine balance of time spent between writing, singing studies and providing reflexology. Sponteneity has become vital and has caused me to place more emphasis on expressing the energy of the subject through colour and form.
My paintings and commissioned works, reside in private homes in Ireland, USA, Holland, Slovakia, UK and Israel. My paintings were also featured on RTE’s Nationwide programme in 2017 (Ireland National TV).
My art collections include:
- ‘Indian Heart Way’ inspired by a life-changing journey in India
- ‘The Sacred Lives of Trees’ honouring the well-being benefits which trees provide.
- My Portugal – sharing the natural beauty of a sunny paradise.
