A Little About the Artist

I am exploring, both in my large canvasses and smaller ones, the rapidly shifting weather patterns and changing light effects and colours that surround me in this beautiful part of the world.

The emphasis in my paintings has been on the turbulence in both the sea and sky and the expanses of open space and distant horizons. Now that I have moved nearer to Conamara , I am influenced by the lake and trees and mountains and the vast expanses of scenery. My paintings are the result of a process of observation and analysis. I use sketching, watercolour studies and photography to record the subject. Having initially laid down on canvas a loose outline of shapes I am going to use in the painting, I then build up, applying colour, using palette knife and brushing on layers of glazing. Colour is very important to me and I seek to capture the vivid colours and changing shapes of the skies, seas and landscape I see around me. The aim is to develop the painting until I feel it captures the exhilaration I originally felt when viewing the scene for first time.

I attended the College of Art, GMIT, Galway as a mature student and attained a BA Degree in Fine Art and Print. I am now working as a fulltime artist in my own studio in Oughterard, gateway to Conamara.
