I have been interested in art for many years, within creative writing, poetry, and the visual Arts. I had the opportunity to gain my BA hons in Sculpture, from Coleg Sir Gar , (West Wales School of The Arts), and University of Glamorgan, Wales.I was very honored to receive 'Student of The Year Award', while I was there.
I am proud to have been involved with the Plein Air Movement in Wexford, through the group South East Plein Air (SEPA),and the Artists Networking Site 'Plein Eire' which reintroduced, and encouraged Plein Air Painting to Ireland, and attracts many visiting artists with it's annual Plein Air Festival 'Art In The Open', of which I was a committee member for three years.
I now facilitate workshops, exhibitions and events from my Studio 'The Swallowsnest Studio', in Broadway, Co. Wexford, Ireland.
Plein Air Painting and drawing from life, offers me, a Subjective experience, allowing me to submerse myself in the creative process, and I feel the resulting works have an energy and expressiveness about them that is difficult to replicate otherwise.
My hope is that my work conveys to the viewer, the sense of curiosity, and emotional response which first drew me to the subject...
