My work is mostly influenced by nature and develops from daily observations which are captured on camera. I work with graphite pencil, coloured pencil and acrylic paint. Even though I have a fine arts degree, my painting and drawing techniques are predominantly self-thought. My work features a lot of animals and I work on commission as a pet and family portrait artist. I am based in Ireland, but I accept commissions worldwide. I have so far worked on portraits of dogs, cats, horses, rabbits and a budgie.
My portfolio also includes wildlife art pieces and landscapes. Besides nature, I am fascinated by maps and I love to travel around the country with a map in my hand tracing my steps on paper. I often record locations with a sketch either on site or from a photograph taken by myself. I feel when painting a landscape I am translating the feeling of the place on canvas or paper.
