About the Artist

 

Originally from Belfast, where I learned my craft, I have lived in County Leitrim for some years.

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 many years experience in producing portraits in pencil and oil pastels.

I usually work from onsite 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, post, and by telephone.

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

Exhibitions
 

I exhibit in solo and group exhibitions such as these pastel works in an artist group exhibition at The Solas Art Gallery in Ballinamore.


 

 

Some of my work at my solo exhibition entitled 'Scenes from Around', at The Solas Art Gallery, Ballinamore, County Leitrim.

  

 

Opening was by the well known artist Sandra Vernon.

I had a recent solo exhibition at the Grass Roots Gallery which ran for over two months and was received with some very positive feedback. I also had a good response to my exhibit of pencil portraits at The Organic Centre Garden Party.

 

My work was included in the Sligo Art Crawl exhibition  and in the Sligo Community Art Exhibition in the Clarence Hotel.

I have exhibited successfully at other art gallery Christmas and summer exhibitions. 

I continue to exhibit some of my work at the High Tide Gallery, Westport, and at the Manorhamilton Post Office.
