Artist's Statement:
For as long as I can remember, I wanted to paint pictures. I spent many hours sketching as a child and when my schoolmates called to invite me to join them in their games and recreation, I usually made excuses and preferred to draw and paint.Realizing this was not healthy if carried to extremes, my parents insisted I find other interests also. Both my late parents were pianists. My mother was a classical pianist and my father played Jazz, Rag Time and Swing. I studied piano for many years.I was trained in the fifties and sixties by the late George Collie, RHA and later I was tutored by the renowned Irish Art Master -Thomas Ryan, PPRHA, hon RA, hon RSA.I respect all art forms. I believe each interpretation is sacrosanct to each individual artist. I paint in the Realistic Representational art form.I paint mainly in oils and also in acrylics, pastels graphite and charcoal. I draw and paint any subject. I like to paint portraits, landscapes, seascapes, lighthouses, architectural subjects, animals and wildlife. I also paint floral subjects and still life. I draw and paint figurative life studies and human anatomical drawings.Married to Donal, a retired Aer Lingus/GPA/Ryanair Avionic Engineer. They have two grown-up daughters, Miriam and Adrienne, and three grandchildren, Matthew, Holly and Lucy.
