Half price tickets for London AAF show in Hampstead

I am thrilled that the Sol Gallery will be showcasing my art at the London AAF, Hampstead, opening with a preview on Wednesday 15th and running from 16 - 19th June. It has been a great year so far & this will be my second show in London in 2016 following the excellent London AAF Battersea exhibition in March, as well as the wonderful show in Singapore in April. I'm also delighted to have access to half price tickets to different sessions at the show. 


Marking an historic time: 24 - 29th April 2016

I have just spent an amazing week on an art residency in the Tyrone Guthrie Centre at Annaghmakerrig in Co. Monaghan. It was a wonderful experience sharing time and stories with some really wonderful writers, musicians, directors and painters from across Ireland, Europe, Canada & Australia. It will go down as one of those fabulous weeks where I feel I learnt so much from the whole experience. A big 'thank you' to Meath County Council for the bursary to attend and Tyrone Guthrie Centre and for their ongoing support for the arts in the county.

#Ireland2016 - Feeling proud to be Irish today

Hope you have a great Easter on this historic weekend.

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.
