Growing up on the shores of Ballinass bay, Falcarragh, County Donegal, Ireland. I was greatly inspired by the ever-changing light on the sea and the beauty of the mountainous landscapes and beyond. My love of the surrounding beauty and its dramatic skies and landscapes began from a young age and progressed into adulthood as I try to capture the natural beauty of County Donegal on canvas. I have experimented with watercolours and acrylics but have chosen oils as my preferred medium.
My first exhibition was held in ArtCo Gallery in Letterkenny and my next was in An Grianán Theatre, also in Letterkenny. From there I’ve had my work displayed in galleries all over Donegal.
My paintings are a collection of the subjects and places that are beautiful and seem mythical. If you ever get the chance to visit Donegal you could see the untouched beauty for yourself My fascination with the untouched natural beauty influenced my work and this is reflected in many of my paintings. By contrast my sea and landscape paintings bring a sense of tranquillity to my collection and capture a piece of home.
