I was born and raised in Dublin and have been painting most my life , I used to work as a painter / decorator /sign writer and mural painter and have vast experience in all aspects of the decorating trade especially in artistic and decorative aspects of the trade , I have worked as a teacher of decorating skills and have several ( 5 ) craft related city and guilds certifications . I now work as a full time artist and sell my work in Dublins beautiful outdoor gallery in Merrion square , I'm happy to say my paintings are popular with the public and I've sold to tourists and businesses worldwide , my subject matter varies as the demands of the public are also many and varied . Painting to me is a joy and always has been a stalwart constant companion . I have paintings in three galleries ...... .....The Kildare gallery , Carton house ..... ....Gallery 23 .... ....Art click gallery ..... My paintings are in collections worldwide and three of my paintings are now in limited edition prints .
