My paintings are inspired by the love of the Irish landscape. I am drawn to capture the play between light and shadow, rugged coastlines, earthy boglands and misty mountain-tops.
Fascinated by the amazing colour and cloud formations of the Irish sunset – I watch those clouds evolve and dissolve over the horizon. Hence, it could be said, that I go around with my head in the clouds – figuratively speaking of course! Capturing the essence of this beauty is my goal.
Inspiration all around me
Surrounded by magnificent scenery, I am blessed to live at the foothills of the Dublin mountains. It is fun and exciting to hill-walk, always ready to capture the landscape by camera, sketch or work up later in my studio. I rearrange and edit to create harmonious compositions.
Weather permitting, I paint outdoors (en plein air). This creates a sense of immediacy to capture the changing light. It is both challenging and rewarding. I am a regular visitor to Europe’s largest open air painting festival in Wexford Art in the Open.
Exploring the world through travel gives rise to experience new panoramas and cultures. It has an inspirational impact on my work and creates a different perspective. This is something I enjoy going in whatever destination the painting journey dictates.

I have had two very successful Dublin solo shows. My work is represented by The Blaithin de Sachy Art Gallery in Clifden and I exhibit in many group exhibitions including Art Source, Ideal Homes and The House Event.
So, how can I be of assistance to you?
I believe that art is for everyone. I aim to keep my artwork at competitive prices, thereby making it attractive for you to brighten an unadorned space with one of my paintings.
Hopefully this results in your enjoyment of a quiet corner to contemplate for many years to come.
