Bio:
Born: Co. Mayo, Ireland
Resides: Cheshire, England

I was born the youngest of 6 into an Irish Catholic family, fortunately in one of the most beautiful places on earth. This unique perspective allowed me to analyse the world around me, not just the physical surroundings, but also the people that made up that world.

From the moment I first held a pencil I have appreciated shape. Learning to write I had my favourite letters, simply due to the satisfaction achieved by drawing them.

About:

My art work has come from years of internal conflict. The relentless internal monologue. The doubts, fears, hopes and dreams we juggle whilst steering ourselves through various institutions in order to keep to the accepted norms and prescribed goals.
