I’m work as a full time visual artist from my studio in Nenagh,Co.Tipperary. In 2008 I obtained a Honours Degree in Fine Art Painting from Limerick School of Art and Design . In 2019 I retired from my position of art tutor with the Tipperary Educational Board and now devote all my time to paintings.
I work predominately in the medium of paint. The journey of making a painting makes me complete knowing that this is what I want to do most in life. I love the process and play with mediums, not knowing what the outcome will be, starting the painting with a vague idea and atmosphere of what I want the work to look like but this changes during the process. Mostly the painting derives from my personal memory of the environment, atmosphere and place. I allow the paint to dictate the outcome and process, in a way each painting is a new investigation into new possibilities.
