I’m a landworker and language worker who lives on a smallholding in the West of Ireland. I love photography (but lack a camera that shoots lots of pixels┼), nature and farming, and I enjoy playing around with digital graphic design and photo manipulation, with a fairly strong bent towards nature’s colors and grungy, distressed textures. When the sun shines here it is a magnificent place and very photogenic. But Irish weather can be dull, grey and dark for prolonged periods so through my work I try to bring colour into my life, and into yours.

I’m self-taught and on a constant learning curve. Feel free to critique away… And if you bought a print or product I’d be delighted if you shared a photo of your purchase in its “new home”. You can contact me here via BubbleMail or on Twitter or Instagram.

Follow me on Twitter if you like: twitter.com/westernexpo411 where I share other folks’ work that I like as well as new work, promos and some other interesting titbits.

If you like what you see, I’m also on Society6 with additional products such as backpacks, duffle bags, towels, shower curtains, throw blankets, furniture and outdoor lifestyle products.

Thanks for stopping by.

┼Ha! Finally moved from my old litte CanonA560 point&shoot workhorse to a preloved Canon EOS 60D DSLR with a Canon EF-S 17-85mm lens in April 2018. Yippee!

RB glitch - can't reply to comments

As most of you will probably have noticed it has been impossible over the last few days to reply to comments left on artwork. All I can do right now is to say a collective “Thank you” to all the kind comments left on my work over recent days. Let’s hope RB will soon fix this as well as the broken view-counter, the jumbled portfolios … [sigh]
