Three years ago, at Christmas time, my sixteen-year-old son gave me €50 and told me to go to an art shop to buy oil painting materials. This was my Christmas present from him and it was the best Christmas present I ever received. I haven’t looked back since.
I use many different mediums, such as oils, watercolour, and pastels. I believe that working in a single medium is restrictive to my artistic process. Each idea manifests in its own individual style. I strive to capture moments in my portraiture and I strive to create atmosphere in my land/seascapes. You could call me a light-chaser! I am fascinated by how the light descends, caresses and defines the subject it falls upon. The challenge is to recreate its effect in oils — a challenge I will never stop trying to capture on canvas.
