Originally from Dublin, I spent many years living in London and returned to Ireland in 2015 settling in Co. Louth. I am a self-taught artist and have worked in various media including digital, paint, pencil, charcoal and ink. I have completed work for advertising campaigns, comics and some magazine illustration. I have also shown and sold work from various venues across my local community in North London, including my stall in Camden town.

Having returned home, I have found great inspiration from the surrounding area of the Cooley Peninsula and the Mournes and am producing and exploring work in papercut and print work through dry point, screen print and lithograph. I am a member of the Creative Spark print group and recently exhibited and sold a piece the as part of the print studio group in the ‘Stretch exhibition’ at An Tain Arts centre in Dundalk.
My work is inspired and shaped by the natural beauty of the area and its wildlife.
