An English born artist, working in Limerick, Ireland, I am compelled to capture and immortalize my subjects, using the ‘juicy colour’ of oils on canvas. A process involving travelling to events and returning with my own original references, to drawings and the ‘bringing to life’ with the paint, a detailed representation of the nobility, honesty and intelligence of my chosen subject.I have work in private collections worldwide and accept commissions.
