With a background in architecture and construction I’ve spent what feels like a lifetime drawing straight lines; at first by hand and in later years on computer.
Painting as I do is a welcome respite from all that goes with a technical profession; a space to quieten the noises in my head and tune into the simple things in life that make me happy.
You can view a selection of my work in my first floor studio and the gallery shop at Fisherton Mill in Salisbury where I also exhibit regularly in the Main Gallery.

As a country mouse from the outskirts of Dublin, a trip into the National Gallery was always a treat when I was younger.
While I of course couldn’t afford the paintings hung there, I could buy my favourites as a poster or card in the Gallery Shop as a consolation and Art for everyone is an important part of my practice today.
I use elements of nature as the basis for my abstraction, usually in the form of a photograph I’ve taken while out and about. Using these images, I have several techniques that I lean on to prepare myself to paint.
It’s only when the initial layers are down on whatever surface I’ve decided to use that the real work begins – I love the possibilities of these early stage!
