About the Artist
Born in Rotterdam, raised in Ireland, I divide my time between Ireland and Berlin. Having completed a degree in History of Art at Trinity College Dublin in 1999, I worked and traveled around the world for 14 years before moving to Germany to focus on my art full-time.
My paintings are inspired by my native west of Ireland and the many other lands traveled since. I have taken part in group and solo exhibitions and my work is on permanent display at Freyer Marktforschung and Wüs Atelier & Gallery. My work has been acquired for private collections in Ireland, Germany, the US, India, Jordan, South Africa, the UK, Lebanon and Scandinavia.
I paint representational and re-imagined landscapes celebrating nature. My paintings are memories that shape my ideas about the present and future.
I like to think that my paintings are always optimistic and extremely positive, creating a space of reflection and calm. Some pose questions in the abstract, while others simply a reason to stop; look; take a breath and remember.
3 of my works hang in the HSE Corporate Finance Center, Irish Government Buildings, Dublin, Ireland.
My painting Matterhorn features on the cover of Mountains and the German Mind Translations from Gessner to Messner, 1541-2009 Edited by Sean Ireton (University of Missouri) and Caroline Schaumann (Emory University)
