“The natural world, its richness of colours, textures, light effects, moods and atmospheres
is what inspires me to paint. I work outside directly in front of my subject,
usually in oils.
It is my way of cherishing and being conscious of our
planet’s breathtaking but rapidly diminishing bio-diversity.
love living in West Cork, I find it an awe-inspiring land and seascape,
still relatively unspoilt.
Wonderful wild places still remain but
it is distressing how rapidly the natural landscape is
before the JCB and the rock- breaker”.
