Artist Statement:

For the last 4 decades I have been working as a creator, making everything from oversize props for advertising photoshoots and TV commercials, to ice-sculpting for the Ice Hotel inside the Arctic Circle in Sweden.

I spent many years working around various European festivals and events as a pyrotechnician, creating spectacular night time shows!

After a lifetime of making hugely scaled-up models, I’m loving the challenge of making smaller pieces of work from my studio in the hills of Co.Sligo.

I work with all sorts of materials from metal to polymers to ceramics, and I love to combine my work with the look and texture of driftwood that I collect in my kayak while out exploring the Wild Atlantic Ocean or the beautiful lakes around Ireland.

Like many other people around the coast, sea swimming became an important part of my daily routine during and after the lockdowns, and this show reflects that part of my life for the past 18 months.

I am open to commissions.
