I was called the " child artist" growing up in Dublin . My parents and their neighbours and friends named me the "child artist" as i had a paint brush in my hand for as long as i can remember. I painted from an early age starting with pencil and oil portraits . I then worked as a Police Sketch artist for many years. After retirement i painted in the medium of Oils and Acrylics, and enjoyed many commissions. I enjoyed experimenting in many different subjects including flowers, landscapes and figures. I exhibited over the years in New York and Dallas, and many galleries ,shows and exhibitions in Ireland.
