I was born in 1971 at Kellswater Co. Antrim Northern Ireland.
From an early age I developed drawing skills and went on to art college in 1990 after leaving I studied graphic design for 3years working as a designer for a large advertising company near Belfast.
I always enjoyed painting and was keen to exploit my talent as an artist.
I had my first solo exhibition at Clotworthy art gallery Co,Antrim in 2000 with over 20 paintings on display.
After gaining much recognition as a local artist many of my works are being exhibited in local galleries bought by collectors and sold throughout Ireland & UK and also USA.
I enjoy painting mammals, birds, and landscapes I like to create a natural feel on the canvas gaining control of light and perspective in the picture with attention and accuracy to detail at all times and also creating good tonal balance throughout the painting.
