"Alice opened the door and found that it led into a small passage, not much larger than a rat-hole: she knelt down and looked along the passage into the loveliest garden you ever saw. How she longed to get out of that dark hall, and wander about among those beds of bright flowers and those cool fountains, but she could not even get her head though the doorway."

Chapter One, Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll

I am an artist based in Dublin. Trained in multiple mediums my work aims to explore unique landscapes. More recently I have been focused on two types of contemporary landscapes: the fantastical zone of the Botanic hothouse with its curious combination of interior and exterior spaces and the hybrid space of the botanic garden with its peculiar intersection of the tropical and the temperate.

For the most part I like to work with colour media: colouring pencils, pigment-based markers pens and crayons, oil pastels, and acrylic paints. I prefer bold compositions and striking colour palettes and contrasts. And more and more, having started out as a miniaturist, I prefer larger studies on archival paper or on canvas.

Most recently, I have been working to expand my digital art portfolio and aim to produce limited edition runs of archival prints.
