    ABSTRACT WORKS

    The inspiration for this collection came from the rich colours of the landscape broken down into a simple palette. Visual realism is corrupted by areas of obscure fragments of disorder. The technical influence of the process comes from my time in screen print during the early days of my training.

     

    THE CONSEQUENCE OF BLUE

    Blue put down, not one or two, but more blue. The need to interupt with something bright and insignificant or maybe dull and significant. Whatever, it comes out of the blue.

     

    MAROONED ON CORRAUN

     This body of work takes influence from the Corraun peninsular overlooking Achill Island in Co. Mayo. Its unusual rock formations and reddish-maroon tones stand apart from it's neighbouring landscape

     

    Biography

    Born: Manchester, 1947

     

    I was always creating. Yet I never quite took the direct path. As an alternative to Art School I went straight into a design house. There I spent 6 - 12 months in each department learning various creative and technical skills in addition to production and account handling. This enabled me to carve out a career path which,like many others, promotions to higher rungs of the career ladder meant I sacrificed my true love of painting.However, I now paint .
