In Situ

Trying out some room settings with my paintings in them!

Outside the Box and in the Circle

Something new that I was working on for an artist book project. All of these images are mixed media on paper - ink, acrylic and gouache.

Changing Colour

I've been trying for a while to move away from blues, for no other reason than a change!! Here's the results!


Winter Blues

New York Shadows

I took these photos on the street of New York recently, sort of by accident, had camera in my hand being the tourist and snapped three of them unbeknownst to myself. Have to say I really like them!


I was recently looking at some older pieces from 2014 and kept getting drawn back to these two.... CLick on them for a larger image

I'm often asked how I paint. An answer to which is a very expansive!!So in keeping it brief I thought I'd show you an image of various stages of a painting. These are not all the stages, but they should give you an idea of the process in which I add layers of paint. Just click on the image for a bigger version.




Aran Light

I had the pleasure of visiting Inis Oirr , the smallest of the Aran Islands in mid November. The weather was beautiful, a really amazing winter light. These are some photos I took whilst there.
