I was born in Ireland and have lived in Trinidad since 1973. I studied art with the Open College of the Arts in the UK late in life, graduating with a BA (Hons) Painting in 2011. I work in oils, acrylics and mixed media as well as printmaking and collage.
In my painting I'm interested in colour and space and the formal language of art. My aim is to explore the wonder of life around me through drawing and painting and to see it anew. The abundant wildlife in Trinidad and Tobago and the vivid colours are a constant source of inspiration. In addition, memories of the Irish landscape where I grew up tend to creep into my work. I used to fight this tendency but have begun to let it happen because itís part of who I am.
