I was born and brought up in Cornamona, Connemara .and now divide my time between there and Galway city. I studied Art as a mature student in GMIT and received a Diploma in Art and Design in 2003.. and was awarded Student of the Year. In 2004 I was awarded BA(hons) in Fine Art. I have taken part in many exhibitions throughout Ireland and had a solo exhibition in the Dillon Gallery, Belfast in 2012

My work is on display in The Lavit Gallery, Cork,  the Sandford and Leinster Galleries Dublin, the Lady's Buttery Cong and The Purcell Gallery, Kenmare.

Artist's Statement

In my work, I portray old houses, farm buildings and the landscape of my native Connemara.  To capture the unique character of those historic structures and the sparse, often desolate atmosphere of the surrounding countryside I use many techniques including; drawing, printmaking and oils.  In doing this I sense echoes of a quickly disappearing era and try to record the beauty and sadness of our past.
