Anyway, Rory managed to win two gold medals at National level at 12 and 16 years of age. Looking back on it now, Rory believes those days were very beneficial to his development as an artist today. Since then Rory has continued to paint from a number of different subject, including landscape, seascape, portraits, wildlife and cartoons.

Rory has a vast range of subject matter and styles. He believes this is what makes art so interesting and sees every painting as a fresh approach
