The Long WalkMy work generally concentrates on streetscapes and surf scenes from the west of Ireland. Strong shapes and colour are key signatures of my work which help to create interesting compositions and create a sense of movement. Another unique feature would be my treatment of the sky, often the sky in a painting has no physical relationship with the landscape below it. In my work I try to bridge this by forcing a relationship between the two by use of lines that interweave between them. I find that this gives a visual tempo to the piece.
I enjoy the playfulness that occurs in my work, the actual process is as important as the finished piece. I feel that the enjoyment I get from creating the work actually reveals itself.
