I am full time artist and I work in all media and all manner of styles and subjects. I love the adrenalin rush of seeing each work take shape and enjoy trying new things all the time. The fact that viewers and purchasers of my works get pleasure from them also is both a bonus and a delight for me. It still gives me immense pleasure when someone wishes to purchase something I have created and bring it into their home. I am inspired by the Scottish and Irish countryside; with its wonderful changing light and seasons, stunning coastlines and dramatic, historic landscapes. I also get great inspiration from my Irish (Celtic) ancestry. I continue to I have an enduring love of florals, and adore creating colourful textural contemporary works that make people want to reach out and touch them. I am determined to keep working in all these styles and resist any temptation to follow only one course of work.
