I was born and grew up in Ireland, lived in New Zealand for three years and now live in the rural Essex Suffolk borders surrounded by the beautiful environment that inspired Constable and Gainsborough. I am a hobby artist and have sold paintings in New Zealand, Australia, Japan the US as well as the UK. I paint mainly to relax and thankfully some people like my work enough to purchase them which encourages me to paint more otherwise my home would become a bit crowded.
I particularly like painting landscapes altough I have done a few portrait commissions, and pets!
