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)

My inspiration comes from my physical, sensory and emotional response to colour, shape and texture during walks in nature. I am interested in exploring ways to transmute the underlying intangible, ethereal qualities I sense there into contemplative, sensual experiences.

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.
