"My Paintings are based around where l live which is close to Lough Derg on the river Shannon. My love for this area and what it offers in terms of swimming, hiking and boating influences the subject matter of my paintings. Figures immersed in water, woodlands and the history of  this area are what informs my painting practice, constantly returning to these familiar motifs."
