Artist Statement

I am an artist living in the west of Ireland where the constant movement, growth and activity of my rural environment intrigues and inspires me.

Often we are unaware of this activity; I like that a stone wall which has existed for a very long time is home and refuge to an ever evolving community of plants and animals. Each crevice and gap performs a necessary function for thousands of organisms, holding and protecting all of its species.

Through my painting I attempt to pay tribute to the natural world by describing a tiny part of it. The process of layering paint and allowing the colour and texture to peep through represents strength, resilience and the passage of time.
