  • Biography
    Welcome to my Artfinder shop which offers figurative and landscape originals and prints. 

    ABOUT ME

    My inspirations are love, landscape, literature, expressed in acrylics, chalk pastels, inks and watercolours.

    I was born in rural N. Ireland and began exhibiting my artworks professionally when I graduated from Belfast College of Art in 1976, where I studied Fine Art Painting, then took a postgraduate course in Printmaking. 

    THE EARLY YEARS
    from 1976 - 1992 were spent in London's East End at an exciting time when there was a lot of affordable studio space for the many artists working there. My home was my studio, based in a whole street of short-life housing for artists, enabling us to devote ourselves to our careers. My children saw that my work was part of my everyday life.

    CHANGE OF SCENERY
    In 1993, I relocated to the Lincolnshire Wolds - its huge open skies and undulating landscape was so different to an inner city life. Suddenly, living surrounded by huge beech trees and seeing the moon captured in those branches subsequently inspired many of my works, but the introduction of landscape into my imagery did take some time to happen. My early works were figure-based, but the figure these days is more part of a landscape and painting the landscape itself is now important too.

    EXHIBITIONS and AWARDS
    In the late 1980s I was proud to be one of 7 artists representing Northern Ireland at Fung Ping Shan Museum in Hong Kong. In 1998, Mount Berry College, U.S.A. hosted a large solo exhibition of my work.
    I’ve been the lucky recipient of two Arts Council Awards - in 1977 to set up a darkroom to produce photographic Cibachrome prints and in 2003 to learn stone-carving - a superb ‘mid-career’ boost in time for my 50th birthday!

    SELLING ONLINE
    Here on Artfinder, I am delighted to list the largest selection of my works - it is my main outlet and most of my listings are exclusive to here. My works are in many private collections in the British Isles, and now, thanks to listing here, my collectors are all around the world from Australia to USA! 

    MY WEBSITE
    lists my exhibitions - on it you'll find an About Me page, as well as examples of my Illustrations - link is in my bio. 
    In my early career I sometimes illustrated editorial, including the Horoscope page for UK Cosmopolitan Magazine throughout 1990, then reproduced in the Australian and Spanish editions in 1991.
    I was company artist for AuraSoma from 1996 - 2000. From the huge output of illustration for their books and products, 2 projects are now collector items - the 'AuraSoma New Aeon Tarot' and 'Goddesses Book and Calendar' - a personal project on Astrology and Colour that I wrote and illustrated to celebrate the Millennium.
    My last large illustration project was a set of 9 watercolours for a Danish author in 2020.
    Examples of my Astrology and Tarot imagery have been included in the both books of TASCHEN Library of Esoterica 2020 - see the "ME AT WORK" tab above to view.
