Art and animals have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I achieved my diploma in Fine Art from Bray Institute of Further Education, and then went on to continue my studies in Fine Art at the Institute of Art, Design and Technology in Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin.
I have a deep love for dogs, especially sighthounds and this is the subject of most of my work but I also create artwork featuring all kinds of animals as well as people.
I have been actively involved in animal rescue for many years through volunteering and fostering, and in 2010 I co-founded Whippet Rescue Ireland, of which you can learn more about here.
I believe the soul of an animal can be seen through their eyes, and through my work I aim to portray feeling and emotion, enabling the viewer to also feel this connection.
I live with a little rescue whippet called Millie and I try to regularly raise funds for sighthounds in rescues in the UK and Ireland.
I hope you enjoy my artwork and thank you for visiting my website.
