Being a self taught artist, and having tried all the different mediums, I prefer to work with oil paint in the wet in wet technique of the early Dutch artists of the 17th Century. I discovered the freedom of flow and intensity of colour that other mediums did not allow. My family emigrated to New York from Ireland, when I was very young. My earliest memory of Ireland was my first holiday and immediately fell in love with the beautiful countryside. I made the decision to return to live in Ireland choosing the picturesque South West. I live in Kerry with my partner Tony. Living in Kerry affords me an endless source of inspiration for beautiful landscapes and seascapes I hope that I have captured the love and happiness in my paintings that I feel when I stand at my easel producing them.
