My paintings always associate with the surrounding landscape. I paint from memory, but often inspired by continuous journeys through the Irish countryside, especially the Shannon region where I live.
Reacting to visual and atmospheric elements around me, the resulting work is meditative for both myself and observers. This brings a quiet beauty to my paintings.
My aim is for the viewer to connect personally with each composition – to be reminded of a place they once knew, or visited by an unexpected moment of emotion. My love for Ireland and its countryside can be seen in the various paintings.
