Painting the beauty of nature, oil paintings & watercolour wildlife studies
Based in Tipperary, Ireland, I paint the beautiful landscapes, wildlife & horses of Ireland and the UK in oils and watercolours with great attention to detail and authenticity. Some of my original paintings can be viewed here and if you are interested in one please use the form on the contact page to get in touch with me or contact Kilcock at gallery, Co. Kildare who also show some of my most recent paintings . I also have a growing collection of the highest quality limited edition prints and an artist's book about my work all of which can be purchased through my online store page.
Covid 19 update- Although the summer show events I usually attend are all cancelled my online store selling my limited edition prints is most definitely open for quick delivery straight to your home. I have a brand new print 'Foxes in the snow' by popular demand and also my artist's book & cards for sale. Kilcock art gallery , county Kildare is still temporarily closed but it is possible to view by appointment as I have both oils and watercolours currently at the gallery, which is one of the friendliest, interesting art galleries in Ireland established for more than 40 years. I also have some originals at my studio please contact me for details

ARTIST'S STATEMENT ' Nature is my main inspiration. The landscapes I choose to paint can be grand vistas under tempestuous skies or gentle quiet corners of meadows and streams. I have a deep love of wildlife, especially birds which I never tire of watching or painting, whether it be spectacular birds of prey or the humble sparrow or wren'. ' I paint in oils, mainly on linen, after first making preliminary sketches in graphite and watercolour, completing the finished oil painting in my studio over several weeks or months. I also take photographs for reference, particularly for bird portraits to ensure true to life detail. Through my work I try to convey in my own unique style the joy and wonder I feel in response to our precious natural world.'
