#Ireland2016 - Feeling proud to be Irish today

Hope you have a great Easter on this historic weekend. 

I was living I London in 1996 when I started this flag and finished it back in Dublin in 1998. It has always been very special to me and hangs at home. I'm very attached to it. 


Happy St.Patricks Day 2016

I'd like to wish you a very Happy St. Patricks Day.  

Here's to celebrating Ireland and Irish people all around the world. 

Enjoy the greening .. !! 



Bid for Quick Silver on Hares on the March

It's been a fabulous experience being part of the Jack and Jill children's Foundation Hares on the March this year. I'm so proud of my creation  'Quick Silver' #54. The online auction site at 'Click here' is open for bids until 5pm on Monday 21st March.  

Don't hold back, in owning a unique and original piece of art like one of the Hares there is not only the satisfaction of having a striking piece of art but there will also be a particular satisfaction to know that the money spent on the art has gone to support a really good cause. 


New Collection - Circles 2016

It's been a really interesting last few months, where I've tried new things and I'm very excited about the results. Not bad for a wet, very wet, windy and cold Irish winter. I am now delighted to introduce my new series of 'Circle' paintings.

2016 - HAPPY NEW YEAR ..!!

I would like to thank everyone for their support and encouragement throughout 2015 and for helping make it a really fantastic and memorable year. It was a really, really busy year and without doubt having my art showcased at shows around the world in places like Singapore, Hong Kong, Seoul, Stockholm, Edinburgh and London made it very, very special. I'm thrilled with how everything went and a huge thank you to everyone who helped at different stages during the year. 


Wishing you a very, very Happy Christmas
