Art discipline: 
Home schooled in painting by artist father
B.A in Literature from University College Cork,
Worked as professional actor, singer and percussionist before becomming a fulltime painter.
Paints mostly in oil and watercolour. An avid life-drawer , believing that regular drawing hones the hand to eye coordination and promotes speed of reaction.
“I try to convey a sense of ‘suddenness’ in my work – the immediacy of that moment of perception before there is time to decode the information and categorise it. I hope always to be surprised by the results. I want the works to look light and unlaboured, as if the work of a moment, belying the depth of emotion involved. I am always juggling spontaneity and control.”
