White World

Moving on with this current work in progress and this newly begun small little painting, I hope for the colour to return soon in this white snowy February we are having right now..



Wet Boots’ 20x20cm

Oil and beeswax on canvas

This painting although previously thought finished, had been sticking out from the rest here in my studio the past few months looking to rework its ending.. So today I gave in.. there is a fear in reworking an old painting but it’s a fear that drives me sometimes also..I hope I made the right decision.. I’ll know in a few months maybe..

‘Wet Boots’ (Reworked) 20x20cm Oil on Canvas



‘Wet Boots’ 20x20cm Oil on Canvas


This is something I am working on at present.. I find it hard to ‘stop painting’ sometimes..it’s like my conscience is whispering to stop but I can’t. Physically, I feel compelled to work some of my paintings up and up until they are almost smothered.. that is where I ‘go’ when I surround myself with my subject..

Before The Fall

August.. The most violet of months out in the open landscape of Ireland. Mountains covered in heather of all shades of violets. It is a magical place to walk, up there in the mountains around this time of year. Those reddened violets and purples, all about to wither into golden browns and yellows and soon to be gone until next year, when the cycle begins again..

In Brief : : Solo Exhibition 2017

I am so happy and very excited to finally have a solo exhibition early next year 2017. I have been working very hard on my current series the past 2 years after a long time where painting every day and sometimes with gaps of months had not been possible for me due to personal life commitments. These past 2 years I have been so lucky to be able to paint full time and explore many possibilities within my art form. With my new studio I finally got up and running here in Co. Wicklow in such inspirational surroundings, I have come back to my true passion and love for painting and nature. Details on my exhibition will be announced very soon. If you would like to find out,  come back here in a couple of weeks or follow me on my Facebook, Twitter or Instagram!

Here is one of my paintings that will be included in the show early 2017. Click on the image title below to read a short recent press publication about the work. To see more click here.

‘Washed Out Season’, Oil on Canvas, 120cm x 120cm


New Painting


Oil, Mixed Media on Canvas, 61cm x 61cm

The light changes so much in the forest as I walk through it almost every day. I feel apart of the surrounding atmosphere and I absorb all of its virtues through all my senses.

The enormity of the trees,

the scent,

the colours,

the light,

the sounds,

the movements.
