I am a landscape painter and oils are my preferred medium
Living as I do in Killarney surrounded by so much natural beauty it is hardly surprising that I feel compelled to try and capture that wonderful colour and constantly changing light and atmosphere.
There is such a feeling of stillness and peace when we are alone in the natural world and I want to convey this in my painting.
Formerly a teacher I took an early retirement some years ago and now have more time for my passion for nature and painting
