Painting en plein air at Haus Rüschhaus, Münster, Germany

I grew up on the wild west coast of Ireland, I always had either salt or earth in my hair, dirt in my nails and followed by various animals that lived on our farm. In the long summers I played with my brothers, rode horses, read books and drew stacks of pictures on the back of Fair City scripts donated by my uncle to stave off boredom.

I studied in Limerick College of Art and Design where I specialized in Printmaking. After my graduation I traveled through Australia and South Asia. Now my studio is based in Muenster, Germany.
