Most of this work spans a greater time period of my life.
I have not placed a timeline for the works.
I have painted and drawn most of my life. As a child in Ireland I was always searching for a surface to draw on. I have lived through imagination, and always thrived when creative.
Creating and imagining is something that I came to quite naturally. I am compelled to do it. Meaning that all this comes from a deep place in me.
To be an artist is to never stop in one place too long. You have to keep moving creatively.
