Originally from Belfast, where I learned my craft, I have lived in County Leitrim now for many years.  I am a qualified archaeologist, a historical tour guide and artist. I draw much inspiration from the local scenery of Leitrim, Sligo, Donegal and Fermanagh. I now generally paint in oils.  With my landscapes I aim to capture the imagery of light, atmosphere, mood, colour and mystery.  With my wildlife paintings I try to represent the awe and magic of that usually fleeting encounter.

I have had many years experience in producing portraits in pencil oils and oil pastels.  My work is exhibited at art galleries, community art and solo exhibitions around Ireland and I have served as the artist-in-residence at Lissadell House in County Sligo. I usually work from on-site sketches backed up by a camera. I also work from photographs sent to me for commission work. I will travel to meet with customers locally (no obligation to purchase) and correspond through email, text and telephone. 

My paintings and drawings are perfect for Anniversary, Birthday, Wedding, Christmas and Presentation gifts.
