The armchair historian in me gets goosebumps whenever I visit a place like Dun Aengus (or Dun Aonghasa). One of the reasons I went to the Aran Islands at all was that I had read about the dramatic ring forts that are one of the big draws for tourist to the small islands near Galway.
Dun is the Irish Gaelic for Fort. But there is no written record to confirm what the function of these ancient structures was. In comparatively modern times, people looked at this site and thought that it must be a defensive structure. And as is often the human tendency, they romanticized it and imagined these ring forts on Inishmore were built by people pushed from the mainland to this, their last stand at the edge of their world.
Life is full of happy surprises. After just over a decade working in the 9 to 5 cube world, I threw caution to the wind to follow my dreams of being a full time visual artist. That was five years ago! Is it easy? No, but something truly worthwhile is rarely simple.
My body of work is wide ranging from photographic scenes of far away places, more near and dear locations, and more fanciful artwork. It's all crafted with a heartfelt love for finding the beauty in little captured moments. My artwork also hangs on walls near and far from private homes to businesses who have chosen to decorate with my art.
Whether you've purchased one piece or a house full or you simply admire and share with your friends, your patronage of my art is...
