My ink & wax (and more recently digital) pieces draw both from nature and the world around me, and from an inner world of the imagination, language, the past and the unconscious. What interests me is how those different realms jostle up against each other, sometimes feeding, sometimes challenging one another.

Monotype prints represent a very different side of my work: more straightforward observations of nature, predominantly of birds and other animals, they only slightly overlap with my ink paintings in their subject matter and free, gestural technique.

The monotype below will be in the Graphic Studio Gallery (Dublin) summer show 2021 this August.
Other work is included in Discover Print 2021 at the Greenacres Gallery, Wexford this summer, as well as the The Russell Gallery in Clare and Kenny Gallery, Galway.
