My desire is to bring colour into your home and joy into your life.
I am inspired by the beauty and resilience of the natural world and I am passionate about expressing the miracle of nature through my paintings.
I am a self-taught mixed media artist. I have lived and worked in Dublin, Paris and New York and now call Toronto my home. I have taken courses at the Belfast College of Art, Parsons School of Design, the Ontario College of Art and the Toronto School of Art, and have participated in a number of exhibitions.
I love the freedom that mixed media brings and the opportunity it provides to incorporate my love of drawing and painting, working with paper, acrylics, inks, and other water soluble media.
I have developed a particular expertise in hand-painted paper collage, and I also enjoy creating expressive floral and other paintings in acrylic and mixed media. I also design greeting cards, face masks, clothing and accessories from my original art.
