"Every artist was first an amateur.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I am a self-taught artist living in Lispole, Co. Kerry, Ireland, who works primarily with acrylics to create many styles of paintings, but with a heavy focus on abstract styles. After moving home to Ireland, having lived abroad for nine years, I decided to spend a few months reigniting my love for painting, and here we are now. For as long as I can remember, I have always had a passion for colour, patterns and all things that glitter and sparkle, and my work is heavily adorned with these features. The main aim of my work is to make people SMILE and to encourage them to embrace colour and the joy that it brings.
“Let me, O let me bathe my soul in colours; let me swallow the sunset and drink the rainbow.” ― Khalil Gibran
