Roaring Water Bay  Oil on board  20cm x 25cm  x 3 tryptich

“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.
I 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
disappearing before the JCB and the rock- breaker”.
