I am a painter and photographer, originally from Co. Wexford, Ireland. After finishing school there I emigrated to Manchester, England, where I obtained a degree in Fine Art.
Over a period of several years in Manchester I worked in various jobs: teaching, adult training and therapy.
When time permit, I returned to painting, mostly inspired by travels to the countryside in Britain and other countries. I exhibited at many venues in Manchester, in solo and shared exhibitions.
Finding the business of making a living in the city environment not compatible with a passion for nature, I finally returned to live in Ireland in 1999, and settled in Kerry, to which I was drawn because of its wonderful visual beauty.
Much of my time has been spent exploring the Dingle Peninsula, (where I lived for a number of years) which offers a powerfully inspiring landscape, an area of wonderful scenic beauty. There is great beauty even on the wildest and most windy days. It is ever changing.
I also teach, part-time, in Tralee.
I work with a variety of media and I have a continuing interest in photography. I now mainly use online resources to show my work
