About the Artist
What do you know of your memories, are they real or a little hazy, my memories are atmospheric and a little elusive, I like to bring you an opportunity to remember something of your history, a quite walk with someone you loved, a summers day idling in a grassy meadow, my inspiration is gathered from my surroundings and memories and linking the two in a painterly way. I am inspired by memories of wild landscapes in the west of Ireland as well as gentle summer meadows in the south east of Ireland, the waving grasses and clear light, and combining these paintings with the meadows and lavender fields of Ile de Re off the west coast of France. These paintings and locations have a dreamlike romantic feel and are wonderful locations to visit as well as to paint. The paintings bring us to a relaxed quiet space – lying in the long grass and seeing our surroundings from a slightly different point of view, remembering hazy lazy days of childhood.
