Artist Statement

“I only went out for a walk, but decided to stay until sundown, for going out was in fact going in” (John Muir)

The underlying ethereal core I sense in nature is my source of inspiration. I consider myself a painter who uses a diverse range of media, light and transparency to “paint”, and explore ways of transmuting this intangible essence into contemplative, sensual experiences.

The square format that often frames my work is significant in this (spiritual) aspect. Seen as the most important shape in sacred geometry, the form from which all other shapes emanate, it is “the perfect square” which according to theosophical teachings contains the entire universe.

My work is in the Irish state collection, embassies worldwide and in private collections in Ireland, Sweden, UK, The Netherlands, Canada and the United States.
