Why are you here?
Where can we see / meet you next?
Afternoon Monday 30 January, all day Tuesday 31st January, morning 01 February. I visit Berlin frequently and will be back around February 26.
What else should we know about you?
Graduate of the National College of Art and Design Ireland with a degree in Fine Art, my work is in several important Collections, for example The Pontifical Council for Culture where my work is on display in the Vatican City, the Collection of HRH The Prince of Wales, my work has been exhibited in solo shows in Rome, Helsinki, Berlin, Burgwedel, Belfast, Stratford upon Avon (UK) and around Ireland.
I like unusual places to exhibit my work for example in Finland my exhibition was on the Finnish people’s favourite Tall Ship, and in Belfast last year I exhibited in the Northern Irish Parliament Building, Stormont, commemorating the centenary of Ireland’s Easter Uprising against the British who were occupying the country for 700 years, while at the same time commemorating the sacrifices of the First World War in the trenches in Europe, with sensitivity I addressed this delicate subject matter in the context of Northern Ireland and I was greeted with great welcome, my drawings were also embraced with wonderful feedback, the exhibition was another great success!
Do you have an insider trip?
Yes, I am a true Artist, follow me!
