As a child growing up on the beautiful Dingle peninsula, I spent countless hours happily wandering through fields, crossing streams and playing with the animals on my Granny Mae’s farm. I was always captivated with nature and animals. I’d like to think this love for animals and the Irish countryside can be found in my paintings. I am convinced that every animal has a different personality and my passion is to capture it in an honest way.
Nowadays most of our paints and dyes are chemically mass-manufactured. My work is strongly inspired by the natural world and using natural pigments is just another step towards a more sustainable art practice. The palette I use is completely earth-friendly, human-friendly and animal-friendly, and above all a satisfying way to create art.
