"My work is mainly influenced by my love of nature, in which I am immersed in my native Co.Roscommon, Ireland. I find inspiration in the hedgerows, flowers and grasses growing wild in my surroundings and am equally appreciative of the beauty beyond my local landscape. I intend the viewing of my art to be an uplifting experience and use a vibrant range of colours, textures and patterns.
Above all I hope that the viewer will forget all of what is going on in the present turbulent times and experience even a moments joy and happiness in the presence of one of my pieces"
